engravings and prints relating to Canadian history were added to our collection. 
Through the courtesy of the Gentlemen of St. Sulpiee access has been obtained to 
the archives of the Seminary at Montreal. The Sulpicians have been Seigniors of 
Montreal practically since the foundation of the city, and naturally the Seminary has 
become the depository of an extensive and valuable collection of documents bearing 
on the history of Montreal during the past two hundred and fifty years. 

The generosity of the Gentlemen of the Seminary in placing copies of these 
documents at the disposal of the Archives will be greatly appreciated by all students 
of history. The task of investigating the records has been assigned to Mr. J. C. O. 
Bertrand who has received much valuable assistance and advice from Mr. Hebert, 
the registrar, and Mr. Henri Gauthier, the archivist of the Seminary. 

A list of the documents already transcribed is given in Appendix C to this 
report. 

The work of copying records in other places in the Province of Quebec, and also 
in Ontario and in the Maritime Provinces has been vigorously prosecuted. From the 
Province of Nova Scotia we have received several important collections of docu- 
ments, including the private papers of Joseph Howe, the gift of Mr. Sydenham Howe, 
and those of George Johnston, the gift of his estate. By the use of the photostat now 
in operation at the Archives copies of documents can be made by photography at a 
great reduction of time and labour, with the additional advantage of an exact repro- 
duction of every feature of the original. 

It is the intention of the Department to install a photostat in the Province of 
Quebec and one in the Maritime Provinces. 

Several documents of special interest are printed as an appendix in addition to 
the lists, and summaries of documents received. 

During the past year a calendar of the maps in the Archives has been published, 
and three volumes of much historical interest are in the press — (1) a second volume 
of Constitutional Documents, (2) a volume of documents relating to Prairie Legis- 
lation, (3) Documents relating to the War of 1812. A catalogue of pamphlets from 
1867 to date is in preparation. I have also to acknowledge the generous gift of Mrs.

Memorandum apparently by Champlain, relating to the 
surrender of Quebec. 

1*29- On the twentieth day of the month of June seeing the extreme 

Sure 52 1C necessity to which we were reduced [of feeding on] the Roots that 

are in the woods after having been ten months only eating seven 
ounces of pea flour a Day for each man I decided not to allow all 
to suffer any longer [but] to remain with sixteen persons both in 
the fort and in the habitation including two little Indian girls who 
had been given me by the Indians to be taken to france and to send 
all the rest of my Companions among the Indians who were to take 
them all and to give them [the means of] life, deciding to send the 
S r Boulle my brother-in-law in a little craft of seven or eights tons, 
burthen with thirty persons to leave twenty at gaspay among the 
Indians giving in payment two Robes of Beaver-skins and in the craft 
there were Five hundred Beaver-skins belonging to the S r de Caen 
having instructed the said boulle to go and look for a passage in 
some ship to go to france or in finding none to take the risk of 
crossing the sea to give information of the necessity in which we 
were even if he were unwilling to Return to Quebecq to share in our 
distress. 

The sd. boulle left Tadoussacq for this purpose, the Twenty sixth 
of the Month of July opposite mantane he met the S r Emery de 
Caen commanding a ship which was on its way to bring us help 
and to take away the furs belonging to him in the cabin (Ihabita- 
tion) of the little craft he took the Five hundred Beaver-skins that 
were there and put them in his own [ship] This done the sd. boulM 
got into a Boat to Come and bring me [the] news of the help thai 
was coming to us by the sd. S r emery de Caen and The seventh of 
the sd. month of July the sd. boulle was taken from the boat by 
Captain thomas who fired a Gun at him when trying to escape hav- 
ing discovered that they were Enemies and the sd. S r thomas at once 
manned a Boat with a double crew and chased the sd. boulle so hard 
that they caught him and robbed him of everything which [he] had 
in the said boat Both clothes and arms and from there [he] went to 
find the general Kearke whom he told that the S r Emery de Caen 
had told him that peace was made to which the general replied han 
he the signed articles of the Said peace no not that I know to which 
the sd. Gnal Answers that he believed Nothing of what was told him 
him of it to guard [him, Boulle] and thus brought him to the port 
of Tadoussacq with Six sailors. 

The sd. glial knowing the help that was coming to Quebecq from 
the sd. de Caen and the extreme need the S r de Champlain was in 
both from the Indians and from several sailors of the boat imme- 
diately fitted out a flyboat and two pataches with twenty pieces of 
iron Cannon and some two hundred and fifty men taking the risk 
of sending the flyboat and her two pataches up [the river] to Que- 
becq which they did being quite near the habitation before we had 
news of their coming which was the Nineteenth of July when they 
at once summoned the sd. sr. de Champlain to surrender and hand 
over the place to them by means of a reasonable Agreement offerinir 
us every possible consideration.

3 GEORGE V., A. 1913 

The S r de Champlain after assembling the leading [men] at his 
habitation and taking into account the utter want of food not being 
able to resist or to subsist having neither provisions nor more [than] 
two or three hundred rounds of musketry help nor news of any one 
who might be coming resolved to accept the best terms they could 
[obtain] and to this end the sd. Champlain set forth the articles of 
his demands which were answered by the Captains Louis and thomas 
Kearke which the said Champlain accepted as hereinunder. 

The next day [the] twentieth of the sd. month Captain Kearke 
took possession of the fort and habitation as well as of the houses 
of the Jesuit fathers recolletz and the houses of two families who 
remained throughout in their homes or on their property they placed 
guards and seized the arms and other commodities of the fort and 
habitation as well as of all the furs both in the warehouses and of 
Jesuit fathers who had three hundred and also of the Compagnons 
de lhabitation to whom Captain Louis promised twenty crowns to 
each one who would give up their robes of Beaver-skins which had 
been promised them by the Agreement. 

[They took] from the assistant Clerk named Corneille his Chest 
a part [of which] was stolen from him contrary to the pledged faith 
of the articles by a frenchman called le baillif a native of Amiens 
who had been employed by the S r de Caen in his warehouse in the 
sd. Quebecq the which frenchman [who was] very wicked in his 
life and in his morals [and] who is clerk for messieurs the English 
in the sd. warehouse is suspected of having stolen a Chalice worth 
a hundred Livres from the recolletz fathers As well as a hundred 
livres in silver and gold which he stole in the night from the said 
Corneille [and] gave him back the purse the next day notwith- 
standing this complaint was made to Captain Louis who remained 
in command in this place [and] who made some enquiry about it 
promising to make a closer one the fact remains that nothing more 
has been done about it. 

Captain Louis when paying a visit to the Jesuit fathers promised 
them that nothing belonging to them would be taken in any way 
whatsoever which was kept to seeing which the sd. fathers made him 
the offer that if they had anything that pleased him he should take 
it he asked for several books and pictures such as he wished for 
which could not be denied him. 

Also that which belonged to the recolletz fathers was preserved 
to them except the silver-gilt chalice [which] as said was stolen 
from them. 

The sd. Captain louis gave me a Receipt for all the Arms and 
commodities that were in the habitation. 

I learned being at Tadoussacq that when the sd. Jesuit fathers 
took ship to come from Quebecq to the sd. Tadoussacq the Captain 
louis wished to inspect their chest, and seeing there two silver-gilt 
chalices with the cruets in a stand he asked to have the sd. Chalices 
and wishing to handle them a Jesuit father named father masse 
said to him sir those are sacred things do Not profane them, straight- 
way said he profanely since you tell me that I shall take them 
Because I do not believe and will take away the Idolatrv The frith 
which [you] put in these things that is why I take them which I 
should not otherwise have done. 

Moreover general Kearke Kept the Surgeon of the habitation 
against his will a Carpenter a ploughman and a sailor telling them

he would give them as much pay as they had from the freneh saying 
he was forced to do this all the more that he had need of those [of 
them?] on his ships. 

I sailed from the sd. Quebecq in the flyboat with the S r thomas 
Kearke The XXIII rd of the said month July who also took the two 
pataches with him after having unloaded them on the way at [a 
distance of] twenty and four leagues from Quebecq we met the sd. 
Emery de Caen who was coming up the River [and] who was 
attacked by the sd. thomas Kearke and his two pataches [in which 
attack] he defended himself very well Until the sd. sr. thomas boarded 
him in such fashion that they could not break loose from each other, 
at last the sd. S r de Caen not being able to contend against a force 
much greater than his own, yielded on the same terms as those of 
Quebecq the Which the sd. Captain thomas promised him and took 
possession of his ship and of all that was in it taking it to Tadoussacq. 

The Sd. general Kearke being returned from Quebec to Tadoussacq 
told me I must give up the Receipt all the more that it was Important 
to his brother and himself and that I must give it up to him not 
being able to refuse in the Condition I was in on his ships I placed 
it in his hands We were a month longer at the sd. tadoussacq wait- 
ing till all the Supplies were transported to the sd. Quebecq Which 
being done we left the sd. port of Tadoussacq the third Day of 
September to return to England where we arrived the thirteenth of 
the month of October 1629.

Memorandum re the restitution of Canada and of Acadia 
by the English. 

1'age 194. In the Conference held last Thursday between Mess 3 the keeper of 

the Seals and marshal de Schomberg and the Agents of the King 
of Great Britain for the settlement of matters relating to Canada 
and to la Cadye. 

The Agents offered to restore Canada without restriction and 
asked that articles should be appointed on behalf of the two kings 
to decide on their claims to port Royal Submitting as sole title A 
memorandum sent by M r Carleton and drawn up [by] Captain Alex- 
ander son of the Secretary of state of Scotland the person chiefly 
concerned in the matter whereby They claimed to shew that the Scots 
and English made the first landings in the settlements occupied 
prior to the war by the french and that consequently their right 
was anterior to ours.

The keeper of the Seals Having examined their arguments An- 
swered that it could not be replied by writing in such Wise as they 
asked inasmuch as their memorandum was not authentic not signed 
by any public minister That it was A loose sheet drawn up by A 
private individual for his [own] Advantage [and] having no 
foundation inasmuch as the dates were lacking and that they could 
not shew at what period the English planted their colony in the 
places where ours [now] are. 

He also stated that he had a document in latin whereby the deci- 
sive answer concerning the restitution of the places in la Cadye was 
promised him within three months after the Day of its date which 
delay had been asked for solely for the purpose of doing things in 
an orderly [fashion] and to satisfy the Scotsmen who had borne all 
the cost of the expedition [which was] leaving that there was no 
further reason for postponement nor to put the matter in doubt or 
compromise. 

The Result was that either the King of G.B. should Restore with- 
out delay the places taken from the french in la Cadye or that he 
should not take it as a Breach [of peace] were we to recover them 
by force, having no other Purpose than to regain our own wrongfully 
Seized by certain individuals Who should not be upheld contrary to 
the law of nations and to. the Detriment of the union and public 
peace which we desire to maintain with the scots our ancient friends. 

And inasmuch as the English have always been in possession of 
certain places in la Cadye wherein those who have been driven away 
will be replaced on condition that they live as our friends and that 
an agreement be reached concerning the bounds and limits between 
the Ones and the others [between them and us]. 

That the restitution of the things taken which shall be still in 
existence shall be carried out to the full and the value of those 
which have been sold or removed by reasonable agreement and in 
good faith and as shall be decided by expert and intelligent persons 
concerning whom the princes shall agree and each shall also appoint 
one of the subjects of the other [namely a] responsible man who 
shall give surety and warrant for the execution of the things 
decided on. 

That in the meanwhile all executive decrees, letters of marque 
and reprisals heretofore granted shall be revoked and declared null 
[and void] in order that matters may be amicably settled. 

Thereafter the keeper of the seals proposed to send a man to Eng- 
land with power to treat of all the points at issue between us and 
accordingly appointed the Sieur de Caen who for various reasons 
cannot be [considered] fitted for the task in question. 

1°. Because he has no knowledge of la Cadye save by the accounts 
of others having Never been in the places [referred to] nor made 
any settlements even in Canada Whither he has only journeyed as A 
merchant who goes to do business and not with the purpose of 
discovering the country and of establishing the French dominion 
there. 

2°. It is manifestly contrary to the Interests of those of the 
company who have dispossessed him and [since] he might out of 
revenge or in the hope of recovery Throw matters into confusion 
and break up their Association. 

3°. Having an action against the merchants of London for the 
Beaver-skins which were taken from him since peace [was made]

which he estimates at Fifty thousand crowns It is to be fearM that 
having the power at command being unwilling to lessen his claim in 
any way He should hinder the settlement of the main treaty being 
urged [thereto] by several persons Interested in His business. 

The only person capable of treating and of conveying Instructions 
to the Kings ambassador is the cap'- Champelain as [being] the 
one who made the first landings in the countries [in question] 
founded the settlements built the forts and visited the harbours and 
coasts of which He has a very exact plan and charts which he will 
shew to Monseigneur the Cardinal if so desired and will give him 
information concerning the condition of the country the situation 
of the settlements of what should be done to maintain ourselves there 
and to draw profit from it. 

He has a share in the companye de la nouvelle france the Directors 
of which have been instructed by Monseig r the cardinal to attend the 
naval council to morrow morning. 



Deposition of Jan Descambours as to his detention at Roehelle and 
failure to relieve the fortress of Quebec, etc. 

October 30. On tuesday [the]thirtieth Day of October m vi c twenty nine, 

Page 199. Before us Jan aveline &c. 

Appeared Jan Descambours, Saying that he had embarked in the 
month of march last in one of the pataches of the S r de Caen com- 
manded by him for the purpose of going to the assistance of The 
fortress and habitation of Quebec in new france, And that being 
about three hundred leagues at sea They were overtaken by so 
violent A Storm that it carried away all their masts and all their 
Sails whereby They were constrained to return to la roehelle where 
the new company caused the Sd. S r de Caen's pataches to be seized, 
The which delayed them for more than fifteen Days. For from 
thence ensued the ruin of new france, inasmuch as they went and 
arrived in Canada two or three days after the English And had 
they not been stopped at la Roehelle They would have arrived more 
than ten Days before the english who having found the Wind fairer 
in the river S l Laurens took the fort and habitation commanded by 
the S r Champlain by agreement [with its possessors]. 

[He] Said that his Capt n having after two engagements fought 
with the English passed thanks to the fog through the S r Querc's 
four ships at anchor off the moulin Vauldre And doing his best to 
get up the River to precede the others who were in front of them 
They learned from the Indians of the taking of the fortress as above 
[stated], And [that] afterwards the said Querc having ordered the 
ships which had taken the sd. habitation to Com? and fire on the 
patache of the sd. S r de Caen sent down a Phlibot [fly boat] armed 
with eight guns [and supported] by two pataches each armed with 
four Guns and Came and fought the deponent's patache for the space 
of Three hours. But A brother of the sd. S r Querc, commanding the 
sd. three Ships, seeing that they had lost seven or eight english He 
caused the sd. S r de Champlain to appear who came on deck, and the 
sd. Querc shouting, pledged his word that he would grant the same 
terms as he had given to the sd S r de Champlain, which the sd. De 
Caen seeing and that there did not seem to be any possibility of

Folio 29fi. holding out Inasmuch as the whole of the sd. S r Querc's force was 

above them at the passage They agreed to surrender The terms 
were that no englishman should enter the deponent's Ship until they 
should have joined their general, and that no frenchman should be 
robbed which was kept to. 

[He] Said that the English have brought back about Five or six 
thousand of beaver-skins belonging to the General de Caen, besides 
those which they were able to trade with the Indians which are not 
a great many. 

Said that the english sent all their Provisions and goods to the 
fort and habitation of Quebec, where They left Eighty or a hundred 
English with sufficient ammunition for the protection of the sd. fort. 

Said that in the Ship of the sd. De Caen There were five or six 
men [who were] wounded in the last fight And seven or eight 
english killed. 

Said that the sd. english left in the sd. country the two pataches 
which they had passed and another as well which they have taken up 
to the sd. country. 

Said that all the french both the sd. S r de Caen and the S rs du- 
pont and champlain embarked in the Ships of the S r Querc who to 
the number of Six ships & the S r de Caen's patache set Sail from 
Tadousac the XIII TV of September and arrived at the Downs 
(ladune) in England on Satudday last the sd. S re de Caen, Dupont 
and Champlain having been taken to London, all the other french 
landed at the Downs to return thence to france and he [the] depon- 
ent having embarked at dover to Come to this Town arrived there 
To Day. 

Said that he had no word of the new patache which parted from 
them during the heavy gale and that it must be taken for certain 
that she went down. 

Said that the Capt n Jacques Michel who took the english to Can- 
ada died there & was buried The which he has Sworn and affirmed 
[to be] True, and signed. 

Extract of a letter from Chateauneuf to Richelieu. 

■[The parts of this long letter which have been omitted have no bear- 
ing on Canada or Acadia. At the beginning of this document 
there is a marginal note to this effect : The words " in cipher are 
underlined in red." They are here printed in italics.] 

* * * I must now refer to the matter of St Christopher and Can- 
ada. In regard to the first, I was very glad to learn, as you were 
good enough to inform me of the truth of what occurred there, the 
Earl of Carlile* who is the only person Concerned having given 
out that he had gained a great victory over ours by land, where there 
were some four hundred left, and that having acknowledged their 
fault, They had asked for peace, which the english are said to have 
granted them and Imposed a kind of tribute for the lands they hold 
in the Island; On my giving the King to understand that which 
you told me about it, He said that he was better Informed than 
I and told a story of a land battle and the great advantages which 
his people had gained. Whereto I begged him not to trust the news 
and to believe that I was telling him the truth, concerning which I 
know that that very Day [when] supping with the Queen he found

great fault with the Earl of Carlile who could not confess 
to having been beaten for fear of discrediting his planta- 
tion which he hopes to sell to some merchants For tobacco 
has decreased ten fold here in the last year. They are 
therefore thinking of planting Canary Vines there instead 
of tobacco. After St. Christopher I spoke to the King about the 
restitution of Canada and [the] fort of Quebec shewing by the 
capitulation that it was taken after the [conclusion of] peace. He 
said to me The Scots claim that the french have formerly wrong- 
fully taken [the country] from them, and that in the short while 
wherein tliey can get back their own It must be allowed them [to do 
so] and that this is not contrary to the treaty. I replied that I saw 
he had been given Information on the matter at variance with the 
Truth, but that I did not wish to enter into these disputes, to wit 
who were the first to discover these lands, the french or the Scots. 
It was Enough for me to tell him that we were in possession of 
Canada and Quebec before the war, that we have since been deprived 
of it, that by the treaty we should be put back there, wherefore I 
begged him to consider the matter simply and in good faith and to 
order the restitution of it and of the goods that had been seized. 
He told me that I was better Informed than he and that I was right 
that his commissoners would settle this matter along with others 
relating to trade. I know nevertheless that since [then] Those of 
his council have wished to enquire into this claim on Canada, and 
of nine who were present there were Six sufficiently Insolent to 
wish to Maintain that they ought not to give up Canada to us. 
But the three of whom the Lord Treasurer was one maintained 
that it should [be] given up. They now desire that I should meet them 
in order to advise as I told you how to make good what has been 
done since the peace, That is to treat of the restitution of eight or 
ten of our ships which have been taken on their way to Spain, of 
their two which were taken by Bontemps on the coast of barbary, 
of St. Christopher and of Canada without going any farther in 
[respect of] a general regulation of trade, which They neither look 
for nor desire. As to that which you sent me concerning the flag 
and the [right of] search at sea, They will not hear of anything, 
their purpose being to hold this matter in abeyance until they see 
what they can expect [to gain] from the peace with Spain. If that 
is made the letters of marque [will] cease, if it is not made They 
believe that we have such need of their support and assistance 
against the might of Spain that we shall willingly agree to prohibit 
our subjects from carrying any grain or cloths into Spain. I should 
raise some difficulty about treating for the restitution of private pro- 
perty without a general settlement were it not for the fact of Canada, 
For as for the ships which they hold here They are of small con- 
sequence and [they] are being strongly urged by their [own] mer- 
chants [who are] Interested in those held at Dieppe which they say 
are of great value. / shall nevertheless have leisure to carry on these 
discussions without binding myself [in any way] until I know the 
King's wishes and yours, [as \o~\whether I am to treat concerning 
the private property [referred to] should they be unwilling to arrive 
at a general settlement. And whether in the event of my treating 
for them -and they give me full saJisfactwn in respect of giving 
back the said ships and of Canada, I may also promise them the 
return of the two [ships] which are at Dieppe wv«n all the goods. 
The whole of this discussion bears solely on the recovery of these

think I [already] wrote you that I fancied that this was what they 
were aiming at.

Chateauxeuf to Richelieu. 

November 26. In regard to the matter of Canada I have told you what I have 

Page 282. done up to the present aud how all the goods were seized and kept, 

And that These Gentlemen of the council were putting off from Day 
to day my admission to a conference with a view to straightening 
out all that had been done since the peace, Which they have not yet 
done their whole time having been taken up for the last fifteen Days 
in Questioning those prisoners to whom I shall refer presently. I 
have no doubt whatever so far as I can be sure of the fickleness of 
these people Here but that I shall obtain an order for the surrender of 
Canada into the hands of those whom it may please the King to send 
thither, the performance whereof as I have told you cannot take 
place before the month of April or May. The greatest difficulty is 
to know what is meant by the words Canada or new france, I see by 
the [letter] you wrote me by the hand of Mons 1 Martin that you spe- 
cify Cape Breton and Laccadie, whereof being in doubt I have 
begged the S r Champlain, whom I would willingly have retained here, 
to give me in writing before leaving the names of the places and 
coasts which I should claim as belonging to the King and should be 
restored to him, Which he did a copy of which I am sending you 
whereby you will see that neither Cape breton nor Laccadie are 
included, and that he thinks it sufficient that we should have the 
right to go and fish there. I beg of you Monseigneur to have this 
point enquired into with him [Champlain] and those who are familiar 
with it in order to set the matter in the clearest possible light and 
not lay claim to any thing which they can refuse us nor yet give up 
anything which belongs to the King, or if you prefer that I should 
simply without explanation on my part or on theirs be satisfied with 
their declaring that Canada and the fortress of Quebec shall be sur- 
rendered to the King. Which might, possibly be the better [way] In

I can promise the further restitution of the two ships which are at

by the next for 1 see that this is their sole purpose and that we shall 
have difficulty in bringing them to a general settlement or to a recall 
of the letters of reprisals against our ships that are bound for Spain 
except I be given leave to speak boldly and to tell them plainly on 
the King's behalf that he will be compelled to issue like letters of 
marque to his subjects against the English ships that may be found 
at sea. I do not think that if they see us fully determined [to do 
this] they will dare to maintain so Unjust a quarrel. But they 
are a self-willed people and the King more so than all his subjects 
who are hard and bold in refusing those things whereto they think 
they cannot be compelled by force & for fear lest they should accuse 
me of too much heat I have confined myself to speaking to them of 
the matter in the manner wherein I wrote [of it] to you. 

In regard to de Caen there can be no doubt as to his fidelity in 
this matter of Canada, where to say truth if Mons r de Lauson had 
had as much experience as [he had] zeal and devotion the mis- 
fortune they suffered would not have happened But this is not his

hundred leagues, wherein there are a number of Islands, such as 
Anticosty, the Islands of Brion, Rames, S' Jehan Miscou, Isle Persee,

were discovered, and some, as Miscou, which was burned last year 
by the English were settled by them.

Dec. 5, 1629. 

My Lord 

Since writing you my letter of the first which you will find with 
this which will be delivered to you by the S r de Caen whom I have 
deemed it advisable to send to you, These Gentlemen of the council 
notified me to attend their council the next day [the] third of this 
month in order to communicate to me a despatch which they had 
received from the S r Edmond Relative to a conference that he had 
had with Monsieur Bouthilier to whom I am reporting on all that took 
place in this council and on all the frivolous complaints they make 
to me Whereby you may Judge of the fickleness and Inconstancy of 
this nation, of the slight faith and certainty there is in treating 
with them. I will therefore not trouble you with it farther, This 
[letter] being only to tell you of the declaration they have given me 
in Latin of that which they had said to me two Days previously con- 
cerning the restitution of the things taken since the peace, begging 
me to regard it as merely a Draught of their Intention and to pay 
no attention to faults of words and phrases, whereof They told me 
that when I should have considered it They would come to an agree- 
ment without [any] difficulty. There is something ambiguous and not 
sufficiently explicit in regard to the abandonment of Cape breton and 
Port roial As also in what they say of the surrender of that which 
was taken at St. Christopher, which I intend not only to clear up, 
but to finish altogether. I know they have inserted it to please the 
Earl of Carlile* who as I told you openly professes himself the 
enemy of france and which would be a Cue and a pretext for Annoy- 
ing us at every turn. They are also making a difficulty about the 
restitution of the goods taken and adjudicated between the XXIII 
april and the XX May when the peace was proclaimed, all the more 
that the Judges and the parties [concerned] say that knowing noth- 
ing of the peace, the former adjudicated, the latter Sold The goods 
and gave the sailors their share that it is Impossible to give them 
back and [that] two [cases] of this kind exist, as they also say 
occurred at dieppe and that it was agreed to return two thirds and 
to lose the third which had been given to the sailors. My opinion is 
that we shall have to adopt the [aforesaid] plan, You will see by 
means of the sd. restitutions what they [really] wish and likewise 
the revocation of those letters of reprisals [issued] to Cadeau and 
Launay, which as I told you in my former letters I shall make no 
difficulty about consenting to If they are Willing to Come to a gen- 
eral settlement it being however only a question of the restitution 
of the things previously seized without any assurance that they will 
do likewise in future I am objecting to this, And were it not [for] 
Canada I should be absolutely of opinion that we ought to refuse the 
revocation in question and even to come to any restitution except by 
a general settlement, but as public affairs involve various considera 
tions. you may possibly find it well that I should consent to the 
restitution of the things which they ask for and agree on a Day for 
Its being made. In which case I beg that you will let me know 
whether I am to promise the recall of the said letters [of reprisals] 
For as they make this a condition in their written [statement], it 
would also be a condition on our part in order to oblige them to fulfil 
all that they shall promise us concerning the surrender of Canada 
Cape breton and Port roial about which There will be difficulties

enough here and over the places to be evacuated in regard to which 
I think [that] it would he well that some of the King's Ships

The S r de Caen who foresees nothing but difficulties [in the matter]

people over there who have served Mons r Edmond very ill, they have 
written from there that in speaking to the King he said all the evil 
possible of the late duke of Buckingam* and of the power he 
•Sic. had over his Master who is not pleased at these tales. Mad e de la 

Tremouille is one of the persons who writes most news from over 
there and it [is] commonly [reported] by means of the merchants 
[that] she is in correspondence with the Earl of Carlile*. This is

Page 3. Mter the receipt of y r i ast [letters] of the XXIX ultimo I carried 

on several conferences with those of the council without [however] 
getting any farther as you will see by the duplicate of the [letter] 
which I am writing to the King. I do not know what they will do 
about Canada, but whatever they may promise me I shall hold 
nothing for certain except we be in possession of it. For I see by 
experience that all that they promise in word they render doubtful in 
execution, whence the King's subjects find Themselves Daily cheated 
by these people here who although to some They have given back 
their ships after many complaints and proceedings, this has been 
with so many charges and outlays that they would have done better 
to abandon them from the first day they were taken, And since they 
do not punish these pirates in any way, but rather shew them every 
favour possible. This evil will never come to an end save by force 
and protection which The King shall give His Subjects as I pointed 
out to the King of Great Britain, who suffers himself to be led in 
this as in all matters by those of his counsel who happen to be all 
Partners and sharers in the captures that are made, and hold it for 
a maxim of their State that as they are Islanders they must hush up 
these piracies that are wrought by their Subjects in order to keep

them in the practice of the sea. It is all the harm they can do, for 
of great purposes or of great undertakings whether of offence or 
defence They are Incapable. 

The Spanish ambassador is here without power to treat of or to 
propose anything as He told me, but only to play the part of an 
ambassador notwithstanding They have sent one thence to Spain to 
treat of peace whereof they have no news as yet of its negotiation. 
The said Spanish Ambassador has brought M r Smith Bishop of 
Chalcedon a Letter from the Nuncio who is in flanders, whereby he 
suggests to him in order to put an end to the differences esisting 
between him and the regulars, to appoint two Bishops besides him- 
self in England and to divide The Kingdom between three, who shall 
be chosen from among the regulars. This [comes of] a Jealousy 
which the Spaniards have against the said Lord Bishop whom they 
regard as french [in his sympathies] in order to lessen His power, 
nevertheless He being weary of these quarrels gladly agrees thereto 
and begs me to write to Mons r de Bethune to support this new 
erection of two Bishoprics at Rome if it is proposed there. I have 
told him that I would write to you about it and that you would 

instruct Mons r de Bethune to act in the matter according as 

should Deem it fitting. I am still awaiting both Mons r de fontenay 
and the capuchins who tarry too long and cannot ascertain whence 
the cause [of delay] proceeds. I greatly regret however having 
Sojourned so long and Uselessly and not to have the honour of Fol- 
lowing in So glorious a journey as you are making whereof the 
success is awaited with great expectation and Jealousy from over 
there where the English ambassador who is in Savoy and must in 
the ordinary course go to france has despatched a courier thence in 
order to Learn how He should act in regard to you whereof I did 
not meddle to speak, save when they told me the Reason for the 
despatch of this courier, I said he was right being in a court where 
the Prince and His children yield precedence to you without question 
and even the Cardinal to whom the said Ambassador yields preced- 
ence on all occasions and that it would be very extravagant [for 
him] to claim rank and equality with you. I do not know what 
instructions they will give him, For since they are guided neither 
by reason nor by decency I dare not hope anything, save if it please 
your Lordship the continuance of the honour of your favour which I 
shall all my life strive to deserve by my obedience and my services

Chateauneuf to the King. 

Jan^ 20, 1630, 

January 20, 1630. Q mE> 

In compliance with Your Majesty's commands conveyed to me in" 
your last of the xxvi ultimo I have made renewed Representations 
on this side to the King of Great Britain and those of His council 
in order to arrive at a satisfactory settlement which should make 
trade between the Subjects of Your Maj ty and his Subjects in con- 
formity with the draught thereof which I sent to the Cardinal 
and to Mons 1 Bouthilier, The former having advised me that Y r 
Majesty approved of it. Having however discussed it on several 
occasions with the leading men of the council on this side, They 
being at last convinced both of the reasonableness and the justice 
[of it] gave me as a final answer that they were quite ready to order 
the surrender and restitution of all that had been taken from your 
Maj ty ' s Subjects since the peace, Even Canada and the goods brought 
thence provided I could assure them that Your Majesty would on 
that side surrender the two Ships taken by Cap 1 Bontemps, But that 
they could not cancel the letters of marque which they had given 
against ships carrying provisions or munitions of war to Spain 
•which was an ordinary practice of their State, that they were more- 
over bound by the treaty which they made in the year sixteen twenty 
five of an offensive alliance with the States [General] to continue 
the said letters, that they could not therefore negotiate with me for 
the revocation of the same, that similar proposals had been made in 
the time of the late King Y r Father to Queen Elizabeth by the S ra 
de Boissise and de Beaumont then Ambassadors here who were satis- 
fied with like answers wherewith the late King found no fault but 
continued to maintain peace and good friendship with the said lady 
Queen even as they hoped that Y r Maj ,y would be satisfied with the 
same answer which they were making me on behalf of the King 
their Master, who moreover wished to give your Majesty all satis- 
faction and make a good settlement for the freedom of trade between 
your subjects from one Kingdom to the other, Whereto I represented 
to them The Result & consequence of this answer with all the 
discretion at my command in order to shew them that it would be 
difficult [and] even Impossible that Your Majesty should suffer his 
Subjects to be robbed and despoiled daily by the English without 
assisting & defending them for the preservation of their life & of 
their property, And that this defence could only be by force and 
[by] using the same means and reprisals against the English which 
would give rise to much trouble and misunderstanding between the 
two Crowns, That the last breach which had occurred was due to 
this Cause, That your Majesties had also provided by the last treaty 
of peace for the necessity of settling that which related to trade and 
to instruct your Ambassadors in this sense as I had been by y r 
Majesty, so that not consenting to agree to this settlement, was 
tantamount to saying that they would not implement that whicli 
they had promised Whereof y r Maj ty would have Reason to complain 
and their Master would be held responsible, That the practice of this 
State which they alleged to me had Never been with us nor with our 
consent Besides that they could not call usage nor practice a thing 
which had Never been applied to us without constant complaint and 
opposition and for so short a time that they could not count a whole

year of it, as I shewed them by the remainder of our treaties and of 
that which had passed between franco and them since the treaty of 
perpetual alliance which was in sixteen eighteen. But as they are 
more set on their own way than on right, They held to their answer 
hoping so far as I can judge of their conduct and the condition of 
their affairs, that before your Majesty can decide what should be 
done in regard to this proceeding, they will have an answer from 
Their Ambassador whom they have in Spain, That if matters tend 
towards peace as They greatly wish, that all kinds of letters of 
reprisals and acts of hostility will come to an end at sea, in such 
wise as that Y r .Majesty shall obtain that which he wishes, [and] If 
on the other hand the war continues, they believe that Your Maj ,y 
is So much involved in the war of Italy against the house of Austria 
that he would be very glad to make a league for the continuation 
of the j-ame with them, and go on gaining time with these arguments 
without being willing to settle anything, believing however that they 
are doing enough by surrendering that which has been taken since the 
peace. Whereto I have told them I did not think Y r Majesty would 
agree, the things taken being of different natures and conditions, To 
wit Canada and the furs which were removed thence. As also two 
or three ships that were taken when fishing, or on their return were 
not Subject to any judgment or condition, nor could [they] allege 
any Conceivable cause for retaining them The treaty saying distan tly 
that whatever should have been taken after the Day of the signing 
of the same should be restored on the one side and on the other. 
That in respect of the ships that were at dieppe They were taken 
laden with arms and munitions of war which they were carrying to 
the Infidels and people with Whom we were at war. That by their 
laws and ours the transport of arms and such like to the Infidels 
was forbidden, that the matter should be referred for Judgment 
when the parties could produce their reasons and defend their right, 
whereas I insisted that Canada and the furs and ships taken on their 
way to fish should be simply given up and restored in Compliance 
with that which had been promised by the treaty and without con- 
dition, Whereto they put me off to discuss it yet once more And the 
next day I took occasion to represent to the King of Great Britain 
all the objections which those of his council had made to me, whom 
I found greatly set on not giving way, notwithstanding that I was 
able to point out to him all the troubles that I anticipated from this 
procedure. Concerning which I shall await Your Majesty's instruc- 
tions without saying anything further, besides that I do not think 
it necessary [to do so] it being merely fitting that Y* Majesty should 
devise means to prevent their doing harm or damage to ITis Sub- 
jects, and thereby set them [the English] in order and bring them 
to reason as He will well know how to do whenever it shall please 
Him this nation having Never been So weak nor So poor as it is 
at present. * * * * *

mised it to me as I have informed the King sending him the memo, 
which I submitted. But as it is a question of carrying It out They 
wish to do so to The Letter that is to say to surrender to us the 
fort of Quebec which the English took from us, but to make no 
reference to Cape Breton and Port roial where they landed at the 
same time as at Quebec, contending that being coasts abandoned 
by the freneh, they did not take them from them and were therefore 
free to land there. Yet nevertheless I learn from all those who are 
familiar with Canadian matters, that their staying in those places 
would be greatly to the detriment of the company's plans and even 
of the fishery. Besides that it would be a disgrace to france to have 
lost something by this last war, the English and Scots have some 
ancient claims that these coasts were first discovered by them. 
And we much more right to shew the contrary, But all this is 
to go into discussion and conference while they are in actual 
possession, which I have always declined to do, Insisting on the 
terms of the treaty that things were to be restored as they were 
before the peace, and that, after they shall have withdrawn, they may 
have any conference they desire. They reply that this is good for 
the fort of Quebec But that as for port roial, they have taken nothing 
from the french there, and settled in An Uninhabited land where 
They still are and promise to live in all good friendship and Under- 
standing with us. On account of these Unfounded claims I am 
putting off acceptance of the surrender of Quebec, for having sub- 
mitted to them the memo which I sent you, If I agree to [take] 
Quebec only. They will take my Silence or acceptance of part of my 
demand as a recognition of their possession, and that the matter 
having been arranged I was satisfied with Quebec [alone], Con- 
cerning which I beg that you will let me know plainly [what are] 
the King's wishes otherwise I shall leave the matter at issue to 
Mons r de fontenay without accepting anything. I am nevertheless 
constrained to add that they are making strenuous preparations to 
send people there this year. And that unless you stop them it will 
not be easy to get them away from there later on [and] even Impos- 
sible for this Prince to withdraw them [they] being all kinds of 
vagabonds barbarians and savages from Scotland whom they are 
sending there, and who are little skilled in obeying. * * *

(N<ime of sender and addressee does not appear.) 

I talked about . . . ago to the Marquis de Breze who told me 
very frankly all that had taken place & [while] all . . . is true 
& without malice yet rumour which is always inventing something 
new mixed up matters quite remote from one another both in time 
and subject and has caused them to be received as [if] said at one 
time & on one occasion & [I] cannot exonerate of great malice 
[the person] who talked thus, things being as they are. As for 
what he said concerning M. de la Mailleraye, He said [quite] 
truly that he was a clever man & was very discreet, & [not] more 
than half an hour later having spoken of very different matters [he] 
began to talk about different kinds of minds, Whereupon the sd. S r de 
Breze speaking of himself said that his mind was one that acted 
without craftiness and quite sincerely Which had no connexion what-

Folio 195. ever with that which had gone before & was quite irrelevant to it, 

& yet the conjunction gives rise to a comparison & the bad impression 
derived from it, wherein the malice consists. 

In regard [however] to England, in saying that trade and com- 
merce Shall be restored as it was heretofore I fear lest that may 
debar us from imposing the Duties whereby it is proposed to levy 
on foreigners in our ports the same dues that they lay on us in their 
state, for which reason I most humbly beg of you to consider whether 
it might not be possible to insert some little word which would pre- 
serve your freedom & yet should nevertheless seem in no wise 
other than in good faith, as [by] adding after these words : as it was 
heretofore and in the same manner as with the other allies of france. 

We have also learned that the english are making preparations 
to conquer & invade all that france holds in Canada, They have 
sixteen ships quite ready & that They have already conquered it in 
imagination [is shewn by the fact] that in new maps Imprinted in 
Holland They have named Nova anglia that which had always been 
named Nova francia as You may see by the map I am sending you 
in a corner of the same which is not a matter of great important 3 
if it stood alone, but with the warning we have of their intentions 
it seems to me that it should not be despised & [that it would be] 
well to make sure of in negotiating. 

I shall expect the papers from the marine department when it shall 
please you [to send them] & you shall be good enough to give me a 
day [in] the holidays to go and sleep in town to have the honour of an 
interview & receive y r decision on the difficulties You have met with 
in the Edict. 

I shall send you at the earliest date God helping me the memo- 
randum in the manner followed on similar occasions but bloodletting 
and a little pain oblige me to finish. 

Articles agreed upon between the two Kings of France and 
England the* Day of* 1631. 

The two Kings having Deemed it necessary for the Interests of 
their Crowns and the quiet of their subjects to restore the ancient 
alliance peace and friendship, long existing between their two King- 
doms Have again thought it their duty to think seriously of the 
preservation of the Princes and States their allies, and to this end 
Have done and negotiated that which here follows. 

It has been agreed between them that they will assist The King of 
Sweden and Their Honours the States of Holland in the Sum of 
Three millions of livres each equally one half which Shall be fur- 
nished without any fail by The sd. two Kings within the first Six 
months of each year in The City of Amsterdam in ready money or 
bills of exchange good and Amounting to the sum of 
given and delivered to the agents or Attornies of the King of 
Sweden, and the Sum of to the sd. States, while 

and so long as they shall carry on the war Wherein they are now 
[engaged] and shall put their Arms in the field for that purpose. 

To this end the sd. two Kings promised to treat and negotiate con- 
jointly or Separately by their Ambassadors and residents at [the 
courts of] the sd. King of sweden and [the] States to the effect that 
in consideration of The sd. assistance They pledge themselves to

make no Peace nor truce. Without their consent advice or partici- 
pation, or to continue The war for Six or ten years, And even should 
they be unable to obtain One of these two conditions. The sd. two 
Kings Have nevertheless further agreed that they will not fail to 
furnish The sd. Three millions of livres to the sd. S r King of 
Sweden or States for whatever number of years they shall make and 
carry on The sd. war. 

And inasmuch as the King of Great Britain declares that he has 
no dearer Care than to See His brother-in-law The Prince Palatine 
restored to his Estates or a part thereof The Most xtian King pro- 
mises to intervene for him in good faith both with the Emperor and 
with the Duke of Bavaria to obtain for him by a favourable treaty 
A fitting satisfaction. 

The two Kings will invite The Republic of Venice to unite with 
them in this Treaty and to assist The sd. King of Sweden and Their 
Honours the States, on condition that even should the said Republic 
decline to agree to it. The two Kings will not fail to furnish The 
sd. Three millions of livres to the said King of sweden and States as 
has been said. 

For the confirmation of A greater peace and perfect understand- 
ing and friendship between the two Kings and to remove all subjects 
of disagreement that arise between them in regard to that which 
remains to be fulfilled of the last treaty of Peace and that which 
has since Arisen — 

Their Majesties will pass the treaty agreed upon in London 
concerning The freedom of Trade and the restitution of things 
taken and held since the Peace Between the S r de Chasteauneuf 
Ambassador extraordinary & the Commissioners of the King of 
Great Britain. 

And inasmuch as the King of Great Britain then put off giving 
the said S r de Chasteauneuf an answer concerning the surrender of 

•Sic. Laccadre* and port Royal which have been taken from the f rench since 

the Peace, until he should have received advice from His Council 
of Scotland, Although by the answer given to the demands of the 
sd. S T de Chasteauneuf the surrender of all that had been taken in, 

•Sic. Laccadre* port Royal Cap? breton and other places from the f rench 

had been distinctly promised him in accordance with the terms of 
the Treaty of Peace, and that hitherto His M ty of Great Britain has 
not given satisfaction on this point. 

The Most xtain King will make no objection to the delays and 
difficulties raised by the Scots, Provided that the King of Great 
Britain [shall] declare that the Treaty made and passed between 
Cap 1 de la Tour and Captain Alexander in Acadia the 
1629 shall be of no effect, And that he is willing that the said La 
Tour & the french shall be restored and remain in the condition 
wherein they were in Acadia at the time that Peace was signed 
between the two crowns The XXIX April 1629 Promising further 
that neither he nor any of his English subjects shall assist the Scots 
in the sd. Acadia directly or indirectly in the event of their persist- 
ing in the difficulties they have hitherto made in' connexion there- 
with. The sd. two Kings being further agreed that whatsoever may 
take place in Acadia and the coasts thereof between The french and

This will convey to you the reasons and the conclusion of all our 
delays the reason has been the difficulty we liave had in getting the 
places we have to surrender out of the hands of the Scots but the 
King has at last Satisfied them and they are ready to give them up 
the conclusion is that all the restitutions of merchandise on either side 
have been arranged with the Ambassador together with the surrender 
*Sic. of the said places of Quebec and port real* they are also willing to 

pass the treaty of commerce as drawn up by us there now remains 
therefore only the payment of the rest of the [Queen's] marriage

places [in Canada and Acadia] and will at the same time ask 
for these orders for the money at whatever the present rate may 
be accounting for it to the King so that he may be able to use 
it for the King of Sweden for whom it is absolutely intended. 
I was not able to answer for the success of this resolution as 
being outside the [terms of the] precise promise made me con-

that you might not be unprepared for some alteration of affairs 
when you receive the resolution which will be sent you in a very

of time since it has been determined to carry it out and the truth 
is it would not have been so urged were it not that the affairs of 
the King of Sweden and his daily entreaties shew us plainly that the 
times which had been set for the payment and which had been named 
here by your Ambassador after the news of the surrender [of 
Quebec, etc.] would apparently be too late for which reason the

behalf of the King that it [the money] shall be wholly and imme-

I believe that the journey of the Marquis who is hastening his prepara-

success of this [matter] there may possibly be people who would not 
regret the delay but the success of this matter will give us an 
advantage over all the ill will which we may have to encounter and 
will not only give the Queen courage and inclination but strength 
and power to promote daily the results of the good understanding 
between the two crowns, wherefore Mouseigneur taking the con- 
juncture into account and the good and the evil that may arise there- 
from I have no doubt but that you will be willing to pleasure his 
Majesty in this matter being confident of receiving at the same time 
all the assurances of the fulfillment of all that should ensue from it

the disadvantages of a misunderstanding as well as the certainty 
of falling into it if this present agreement miscarries are well 
known to us this is why I shall have no doubt of your ability to 
avoid them in an even greater difficulty than this one there is so 
little to be done in the present instance that the importance of 
not even seeming to fail makes me anxious moreover the general 
welfare [and] those who serve you personally will have the benefit 
of having overcome difficulties which you will not find it hard to 
conceive of [but] most of all I beg that Tour Lordship will first 
inform the Queen of the resolution [come to] and if you are inclined 
to comply with our requests it will be honourable and fitting you 
should do so out of consideration for the Queen and to so state 
publicly and to send specially hither placing everything in her hands 
before the Ambassador announces it I have pledged my life to her 
that france would do this if she would make up her mind to satisfy 
us and I know well that your devotion to her honour and content- 
ment is a better pledge for this [matter] than my life wherefore I 
beg that Your Lordship will despatch this news to us as soon as it 
may be possible for you to do so, because I am telling you of the result 
of everything [that the result...] which consists in the immediate 
satisfaction of Burlamasi all other things are as you wish them 
[to be] and you will soon have the Ambassador's report on them 
but we wished to be the first to prepare you to find nothing 
strange in this proceeding the Cardinal will oblige the Queen to 
whom he is not a little obliged for the opinions she has of him : 
it is alleged here that you gave us on your arrival here the same 
assurances of the payment of the marriage [portion] as are now 
made to us without any condition and a thousand other things but 
the upshot is that by granting this you would settle everything and 
would be assured of a profit on your money [it] being withouit 
fail used in Sweden and without this [payment] a breach of the 
understanding will most certainly occur. I have written to the 
Cardinal reminding him of the promise to advance the money for 
this purpose for which it is actually [and] certainly intended more- 
over My Lord the respect to the Queen which is here looked for 
will be honourable and useful to you wherefore I conjure you 
to ensure the speedy despatch of this news if you accede to this 
request Burlamahi will leave at once if not his journey will be 
stopped. I will add nothing to this wearisome letter save [a mention 
of] the Marquise's pregnancy whom if you are a perfect gallant 
you will aid by procuring the absence of her husband which nothing 
will effect so speedily as our agreement you will see by the Queen's 
letter her feelings and her wishes I have fulfilled her commands 
in setting forth her wishes at length to whom they are so dear 
that being in conformity with the King's service one should look 
confidently for success the Chevalier will leave in eight days and 
will tell you how everything stands here and me that of

has been doing so. and also because I have not yet [received] your

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 29b 

Lord, although these two reasons still exist, the importance of 
matters makes it imperative that I should let you know the present 
condition of the treaty which you have sent me authority to sign 
and what has been done in connection therewith. 

On Mons r de Montaigu's arrival here I urged the King of G.B.'s 
commissioners to carry out what he had promised in france touch- 
ing the surrender of quebec and Port Royal whither they were 
bound to send speedily in order to make the surrender of them 
whereto they replied they had never given him any authority to 
negotiate or to promise, that having gone to france for other reasons, 
he had reported to them on his return that an offer had been made 
to settle the payment of the marriage [portion] simultaneously with 
the delivery of the quebec despatches whereupon having wished to 
discuss [the matter] with him as being at variance with my special 
orders notwithstanding I had a general [order] to confirm what- 
soever had been promised him. he informed me that he had not gone 
so far although he had said that the departure of those who should 
be commissioned to go to Canada would be considered as an 
actual surrender and that Without waiting for news of their arrival 
the english might send Burlamachi from france for the recovery of 
the remainder of the dowry, Which being also at variance with my 
instructions which are to the effect that his Ma** has no intention 
that it should be mentioned it being a matter which has no con- 
nexion with the execution of the treaty of peace and which must be 
done at his good pleasure and becomingly. I was not [however] able 
to get to that point though it would really ham been useless 
[to do so] the english declaring their determination to stand by 
their terms and to take no measures for the surrenders except they 
be assured at the same time of that which they claim, which I have 
given them in word as far as I could and magnified the King's good 
intentions in clear and pressing terms wherewith they being unwill- 
ing to be satisfied they have drawn up an article to be inserted in 
the treaty concerning this matter, to which I could not subscribe 
they still persisting in wishing to send to france before [sending] 
despatches to Quebec, I urged against them the non-fulfilment of 
things promised and the hindrances they were raising to the voyage 
and to the treaty by their delays and by their new proposals also 
complaining that during the period of our conferences the second of 
which had been postponed for three weeks they had sent two ships 
to Canada, they replied that the ships were only laden with provi- 
sions which they did not wish to be captured knowing that prepara- 
tions were being made in france, that the king their Master would 
on his side perform what he had promised, that the delays they 
had made were for the purpose of discussing [the matter] with 
th?ir merchants concerned and that as evidence of their desire to 
avoid delays they had decided to send powers in due form by Bur- 
lamachi and all the despatches necessary for the ;.urrender of the 
places to their Ambassador, so that their men might start from 
france without awaiting further instructions from England so soon 
as they were assured of their debt, I told them that the Banker"s 
journey would be thought very strange nor did I think that he 
would gttin anything by it until they should on their side have 
performed that which Montaigu and they themselves had promised, 
they rejoined that they would send him to their Ambassador who

should have instructions to urge the matter and the other to facili- 
tate and arrange the payments in case the [two countries] should 
be of one mind. That is the conclusion to which they have come 
based on the hope given them by Montaigu in order to be employed 
that they may succeed in their object through his agency and on 
several letters written from franoe to burlamachi which he has 
shewn to the Ld. Treasurer and to several others as I stated in my 
letter of march 1 which I begged Monsieur Boutillier to shew you. 

There is nothing to object to in the remainder of the treaty, as 
Your Lordship will see by the memoranda thereon which I am send- 
ing you [and] which the english agree to

JTay 22, 1632. You are so used to the difliculties [connected with] surrenders 

that you will not wonder at the delays and obstacles which may 
arise therein the King my master hath at last removed all those that 
stood in the way of the surrender of Quebec and port real which he 
is ready to make according to the agreements with the Ambassador 
oi france provided that Burlamahi shall receive at the same time 
assignments valid for the payment of the remainder of the Queen's 
marriage [portion] as this demand has somewhat exceeded the pro- 
mise made to me I have only been able to reply to it by [an expres- 
sion of] my hope according to that which your Jordship gave me 
that in the event of their being willing to use it in assisting the king 
of sweden that france might bring herself to advance the money where- 
upon the King said to me that I might give every assurance on his 
part and that this purpose made him press for the payment now 
believing that france would very willingly agree to oblige him in 
this matter of time since delay would make this money useless to 
him the other matters My Lord have been settled here with the 
Ambassador of france according to the points conveyed by me the 
Queen has deemed it well to inform you of this resolution of the 
king's with the reasons [for it] in order that she might not shew 
a distrust of but rather a confidence in the good intention of the 
King her brother to grant it believing that a matter of time would 
rather be chosen in order to pleasure her than to inject a difficulty in 
[the way of] bringing to pass so important and so happy an ending 
of all their differences the Queen My Lord has no doubt of your 
e ;ual willingness to do all that is useful and honourable which is 
why she feels confident that by your means this end shall be the 
beginning of much happiness to the two crowns personally My Lord 
I should be unable to allege any promise of so speedy a payment 
wherefore I speak only according to my hopes based on your prud- 
ence being able infallibly to assure you that the money will rather 
be used in Sweden than touched here I have no doubt My Lord but 
that you will deem the respect you shall bear to the Queen in 
this business a means for bringing it about assigning whatever 
more you shall do to consideration for her and sending it [the 
money] to her hands this may have much import as a thing due 
in her need [of it] she has wished to inform Your Lordship of it 
through me in order to prevent your thinking the King's intentions 
to be in any wise changed by the demand of so speedy a payment 
you will receive from the french Ambassador all that has been 
agreed upon and asked for in writing wherein you will find nothing 
new except it be that you are always glad to find a fresh opportunity 
of doing more generous things than you have promised wherein you

My Lord 

Philippe Burlamachi has informed me that tbere was only left for 
him to receive certain arrears of the Stocks given him in payment 
of the Monies owing by His Most christian Ma tv to the King my 
master as also he claims that Monsieur Deffiatt of happy memory 
had assured [him] that if he lost on the price of the Stocks in turn- 
ing them into money he would be compensated. He assures me that 
by the delay of the Contracts of the said Stocks which were kept 
from him from the month of March 1631 Till the month of March 
1633 He was much Involved in the Interests wherein he suffered, and 
that in order to turn the said Stocks into money He has lost at least 
the amount of Six thousand pounds Sterling without reckoning those 
which he advanced to the French Officers sent back to france, and 
others that were assigned on the same payment. He also told me 
that the Company of New france is withholding from him the Sum 
of Fifteen to Sixteen thousand livres tournois, for Provisions and 
supplies which on his order and Credit the Scots of Port Royal Sold 
to the Commandant de Rosilly Which sum according to the order 
of the said Commandant as shewn by his bill of exchange he paid 
here to the said Scots in virtue of his promise, without however 
being able to obtain payment of it Up to the present from Seig r 
de Lauson at whose request he gave Credit to the said Commandant. 
I beg that Your Eminence will lend him your good offices in order 
wherein he has a Jaist claim he may receive it, and that wherein he 
shall have need of His Most christian Ma ,y s favour he may [also] 
receive it to relieve him of this so serious loss. It will be a work 
worthy of Your Eminence's greatness and which will constrain me 
on all occasions wherein it may please him to command me to prove

LETTER EEOM CAPTAIN NICHOLSON WRITTEN FROM 
JAMES CITY, VIRGINIA. TO THE LORDS OF TRADE 
AND PLANTATIONS. 4 NOVEMBER, 1690. 

Lre from Cap' Nicholson to the Committee. 

Virginia, James Citty, Novem br : 4 th : 1U90. 
May itt please y r Lord 6ps 

Vol°'l905 B y CaDt Thomas Dilks. Command" of their Maj tiei shipp Sam 11 & 

p. ieo. Henry, I presumed to write to your Lord sps & still most humbly begg 

that your Lord 8ps would be pleased to accept of my Dutyfull thanks 
for sending of me hither, where I doe & shall (God willing) endeav- 
our to promote their most Sacred Maj ,ies Interest in these American 
parts. 

I have now seen all the Country, with y° Places y' are improperly 
called Fortifications & most of y e Militia, w oh I find neither well dis- 
ciplined nor arm'd k y c reason of their not being arm'd, is their 
Poverty. I am desired as yo e Lord sps may see by y e Journall of y e 
Councill to begg of yo° Lord aps to speak to his most Sacred Maj" e y' 
he would be Graciously pleased to send hither some Arms for foot 
Souldiers, & find Granadeer Arms y e properest for this Country. I 
intend (God willing) in y e Spring to take a Review of all y e Militia, 
& see whether they have observed y e Orders I gave them about their 
Exercise & equipping themselves w ,h Arms, and Ammunition. I am 
Forts. a i so t„ desire yo e Lord sps to Begg of his most Sacred Maj Ue some 

Stores for y e Plattformes, an acc' of them I send yo e Lord sps . This 
Country lies soe upon broad Navigable Rivers, y* itt is almost 
impossible to secure y e shipps. without a good Fort or two in each 
of y e four Rivers: To build, keep them Garrison'd & in good Repair, 
will cost more than can be raised in this Country. I humbly offerr 
to yo e Lord sps that not only this Province, but Maryland, will be 
y c best secured by Friggatts & a Fire Shipp would be Extraordinary 
Serviceable, for she might doe the same work as y e Donbarton does 
now. The Men of Warr might secure y e Country from a foreign Enemy, 
for now we are liable to have our shipps taken, & y e Country plunder'd 
(not liveing together in Towns as other places doe) by a Privateer 
or two. The Friggatts would keep those Countries in aw, & secure 
their Maj ties Customes (W* your Lord sps know are very considerable) 
for without them itt is almost impossible to hinder very irregular 
Tradeing here, but especially in Maryland. 

I am desired by their Maj ties Councill here to begg yo e Lord 8 " 4 
would move his most Sacred Ma ty about y" 5 Northern Neck. In y e 
Journall of y e Councill y e Case is att large, & M r Secretary sends yo e

Lord" 1 * a Coppy of a Comission Co" Ludwell gave in those parts, soe 
will not trouble yo c Lord 81>s w" 1 y c Repetition, of y 1 affair. I hope 
some Order will come ab l itt, & in y e Interim will continue to prevent 
any Commotions y* shall be raised in those parts. I am also desired 
by their Maj" <s Councill to beseech yo° Lord" 1 "' y l you would represent 
to his most Sacred Ma ,J ' y c lessening of their Ma tys Revenues both in 
England & here, by not haveing Shipps to transport y e Tobaccoes (w ch 
is a perishing Comodity, especially y c Oronokequc Tobae") & if 
shipps doe not come from England, y e Country will be in a bad 
Condition, for want of Clothing, (for this last year there was not 
soe many shipps as formerly) & itt may putt them upon some other 
way of liveing, then by planting of Tobac 08 w° h T humbly conceivfl 
would be very Prejudiciall to their Maj ties in respect of y e Customs. 

I was att our Southern Bounds, and if y c Lords Propriet™ gott a 
grant for North Carolina to begin att y e Lattitude of 36 & a half, 
suppose they will take from this their Maj tics Province, a great many 
Plantations, to the lessening of their Maj tips Quitt rents, & great dis- 
satisfaction of y e plant 13 for those I spoke w th in North Carolina 
desired to be immediately under their Maj ties Governm 1 of Virginia, 
itt lying soe convenient for them, therefore hope wee shall keep them 
quiett. 

What hath passed betwixt my self & Maryland send yo r Lord 61 * y e 
Coppies of y e Lett ra & am in hopes that Province will be settled soon, 
for I am forced to be very watchfull of them, lest they should bring 
th,eir neighbouring part of this Country in Disorder. I send yo r 
Lord sps a Coppy of a Lett r sent by their Maj ties Councill here to New 
England, and I have an ace* from severall Principall Men there 
(whom I wrote to by y e Messenger) y' they are in a bad Condition, 
for y* French & Indians have kill'd & taken about 1000 of their 
people, severall Towns, Forts & Plantacons haveing been destroyed 
by y m & some within 30 Miles of Boston, y' there hath been great 
Taxes & liked to be greater, y e Country very much impoverished, 
w ch makes y e people very uneasy, & there are great Divisions amongst 
y m . All their honest Men have little or noe Trade, but y e others 
(for all their Publick Calamities) manage now as formerly an Un- 
lawfull Trade, for I am inform'd by severall, y* they have Vessells 
come directly from y c Canaries & Cadiz, whither they carry Tobaccoos. 
They have also a Trade with Newfoimdland (where suppose they gett 
French Goo Is) for a Privateer took two Shipps tradeing there 
amongst the English, they came from France haveing been taken by 
them, one did belong to London & y° other to New England. I hear 
they were bought in France by some English Merchants, they are 
Sailed by English Men and have y e French Kings pa^s, & suppose 
these are not y c only shipps y l Trade thus.

APPENDIX H. 

REPORT BY CAPTAIN MORRIS TO GOVERNOR SHIRLEY 
UPON HIS SURVEY OF LANDS IN NOVA SCOT]/ 
AVAILABLE FOR PROTESTANT SETTLERS, 1740. 

Enclosure in Letter of 18 th Feb r 1749 Shirley to Bedford. 

A & W. I., Mimorandum. 
Vol. 63, p. 106. 

In what Places in the Province of Nova Scotia a Number of Pro- 
j testants may speedily settle themselves, in such a manner as to be 

able to protect themselves against a Party of Indians and support 
themselves. 

Annapolis Royal 

N° 1. The lands lying between the Bason of Annapolis Royal and 
the Bay of S' Marys will admit of Kighty or One hundred Family.-. 
Their first Lotts, ought to be only sufficient for a House, Barn, and 
Garden of half an Acre each, and in like manner all the other 
Settlements and then their Farm Lotts may be laid all contiguous 
to them, their Home Settlement to border on the Bason of Anna- 
polis from whence they will have a Communication by Water with 
the Garrison of Annapolis Royal, where they may sell their Timber, 
for the building & Repair of that Garrison and for Firewood, and 
thereby subsist themselves, while they are improving and clearing 
their Lands. In this Tract next to the Bay of St. Mary's is a con- 
siderable Quantity of Salt Marsh, and in the Bason a place calFd 
the Joggin, whether all the Inhabitants of the River at a certain 
Season of the year come to catch Shadd. No French Proprietors 1 — 
Distance from Annapolis Fort Fourteen Mile. 

N° 2. That Tract of Land lying between the Gut of Annapolis ex- 
tending E N E to the first village: This will make a good Settlement, 
but the French Inhabitants are possesst of all the Marsh Lands 
which ought to be divided among the New Settlers & them in Equal 
Lotts. This will have the same advantage as the other in supply- 
ing the Garrison. Their House Lotts may be laid out at a Place 
call'd the Scotch Fort, a place of consequence, where the River of 
Annapolis is not above six hundred yards over, and the depth of the 
channell within one hundred yards of it. A Battery might be 
erected here under the Protection of such a Settlement which would 
Secure the Harbour and River. This would accomodate Forty 
Familys. Distance from the Fort five Mile. 

N° 3. Another Settlement might be made adjoining to that and ex- 
tending to Lands opposite to the Fort, it includes Twenty French 
Familys, a considerable Quantity of Marsh undyk'd; Forty Fam- 
ilys more might be accomodated. Settlement might be made Dis- 
tance about two mile from the Fort. 

N° 4. A Tract of Land on the Southermost side of the River ex- 
tending from the Fort to Moose River would accommodate Eighty 
Settlers, because in this Tract are two considerable Marshes for the 



CANAH1AX ARCHIVES 



1 GEORGE V, A. 1911 

nio-t part undik'd. This includes Eight French Farnilys. Their 
Settlement might be One Mile & a half from the Fort. 

N° 5. & 6. Two small Settlements of thirty Familys each may be 
accommodated up the River .Six Miles from the Garrison. 

All these Familys might in a great Measure be supported by the 
Garrison in the Labour of Repairs, in rinding Timber, boards, 
Shingles and Firewood, and if the Garrison should be revested with 
Brick, they would be able to make sufficient for that End, as there is 
the best of Brick Clay, in every district abovenam'd; which would 
save also, some Thousands of Pounds Sterling in Transportation. 

And as there is no considerable Quantitys of Marsh further up the 
River, in a Body together; so no English Settlement can readily be 
brought forward. The absolute necessity of the Marsh Lands being 
alloted and apportioned I shall mention hereafter. 

All the Lands lying between th e Settlements on the River of 
Annapolis till you come to the River Canard, an Extent of Fifty 
Miles in length, lyes between two Ranges of Hills, & is about four 
Leagues wide, is for the most part Barren, has no Inhabitants, will 
admit of very few scattering families when the Country is fully 
settled. 

Minas. 

N° 1. River Canard has great Quantitys of Marsh Lands, and so luis 
the River Habitant, a Fine Settlement might be made on Upland lying 
between these two Rivers of One hundred Familys Mowing Lands 
and Wood Lands equivalent to be assigned the French Proprietors 
west of their present Settlements. 

N° 2. Minas and Gaspero have very large Quantitys of Marsh Lands 
will accommodate One Hundred and Fifty Families more. Mowing 
Lands for the Protestants and French South west of their Settle- 
ments and Wood Lands on the Eastern side of Pisgate River where 
they now fetch Wood all Water Carriage, The great Island on the 
Marsh will accommodate twenty Familys. 

N° 3. Pizaquid. Sixty Familys; Settlement on a piece of land 
fronting the River St. Croix between two large Meddows. Equivalent 
Mowing & Wood Lands NW of Pizaquid & this will fully settle all 
the Lands between the River Pisgate and the River Canard. 

The little Island on Grand Pre is well scituated for a Fort not 
only to assist and Forward all the above Settlements, but is so sur- 
rounded with Marsh, that no Regular Approach can be form'd against 
it without infinite expenee, and therefore might be maintain'd with 
a few regular Forces it is thirteen hundred paces in length & four 
hundred in width but towards the Marsh great part is Low & wet 
grounds. No large ship can come within one mile & a half without 
grounding, there being but two fathom in the Channel at Low water. 

N° 4. Harbour Advocate and Cape Doree will accommodate thirty 
Familys has three bund' 1 Acres of Salt Marsh, and Excellent uplands. 
No French Proprietor. 'Tis said to have been granted the Duke of 
Chandos. Copper is found in the Crevices of the Rocks for two 
mile together and no doubt some valuable Copper Mines. 

Cobequet will admit of several Settlements; the River Shubnac- 
eadie is said to have the most fertile lands in the country and runs 
within two mile of Chebucto as does also y e River St. Croix; but as I 
am not personally acquainted with that part of the Country I leave it.

Tho that part of the Country ought to be attended to, aa it is one of 
the Inroads of the Canadians into the Province. 

Chiegnecto. 

Chiegnecto Bason is surrounded with Marshes almost intire. Three 
in particular run far into the Country towards the Bay of Vert. The 
Northermost of Eight Mile in length & One mile & a half at a Com- 
mon Breadth contains above seven thousand Acres, a navigable River 
in tie midst of it for Sloops and small Vessells within two Mile of 
the Head of the Marsh. The next runs much farther and contains a 
great Quantity, the other joins this last surrounding the old Settle- 
ment of Chiegnecto & contains above three thousand Acres besides 
there are several considerable Marshes on the River Minas & the 
South part of the Bason. Here more then Five Hundred Family-* 
might be settled and find an Immediate Support if the Marshes and 
uplands were but equally divided and in contiguous Settlements One 
hundred familys in each Settlement and they may be thus accommo- 
dated. 

N° 1. One hundred Familys in the South Settlements of Chieg- 
n 'cto mark't N° 1 contiguous to the Bason, supplied with Marsh 
Lands N° 1 and Upland for mowing and woodland back and con- 
tiguous. 

N° 2. One hundred Familys in Old Chiegnecto with part of the 
Marshes ~N° 1 & Q. Upland for mowing. The Lands on which Old 
Chiegnecto stands, being an Island on the Marshes. Four mile Long 
One Mile & a half wide in common. 

N° 3. One hundred Familys where is settled Thirty French Familys. 
Upland for mowing a Ridge of Land between the two Meddows N° 2 
& 3 and to extend four mile. It is two Mile wide, these two last 
Settlements may be supplied with Wood-Lands, the uncultivated 
Lands from Cape Marangnon to the first Marsh Three leagues in 
length this will be Water Carriage to their Doors. 

N" 4. One hundred Familys on the same Ridge. Marsh the Upper 
]iart of N° 2 & 3 Grass & Wood lands adjoining and of an exceeding 
aood Soil. 

N° 5. One hundred Familys close to the Bason. Marsh Lands X° 
3, Upland for Grass & Wood Lands contiguous. 

N° 6. A Settlement of Sixty Familys at the River Minas, with 
Marsh, Grass & Wood Lands contiguous. 

N° 7, 8 & 9. Three other Settlements may ibe made at Chipotee 
or Shepody, Marooncook & Patcootycak of fifty Familys each & in 
like manner. 

From Chipotee or Shepody There is no Marsh Lands all along the 
Northern Shore (till you are past St. Johns) near thirty Leagues. 
The Lands are Mountainous and broken without a Harbour except- 
ing that of St. John's River which is but indifferent, dangerous at 
its Entry, & much expos'd to a Southeast Wind, which is generally 
a storm; The Lands of St. John's River is said to be incapable of 
any great improvement till you come twenty Leagues into the 
Country: Yet as by this River, the Indians receive all their Food 
from Chiegnecto & Minas a blockhouse or small Wooden Fort would 
be necessary, either to carry on a Trade with them in Peace, and to 
Cultivate a good understanding between the English & them, or in 
War to distress them, by cutting of their Supplys: bv this River the

Canadians also enter into the Province of Nova Scotia: It is distant 
from Annapolis Thirteen Leagues North Westerly. 

I would here take notice that in the Meddow N° 2 of Chiegnecto 
runs a River, which is said to be navigable within i mile of the Bay 
of Vert, but it is a mistake, it flows but about three Miles and a 
half from the Bason and there I crost it over a Bridge; a Fresh 
Water Brook empties itself (above that) into this River, which other- 
wise is dry at two hours Ebb. This fresh Rrook is dry at some 
Seasons, it was quite dry in September last when I crost it, but 
spring and Fall there is Water enough, the Country being upon a 
Level, to bring, in small Canoes, Hog" 1 * of Rum & Molasses and 
other Merchandize, which the Inhabitants take in Exchange for 
Cattle, Wheat, Furra &e carried to Louisburg by the Bay Vert. 

On this .Marsh also within a quarter of a mile of the Bason is a, 
tine Hill or Island in an Oval Form near Sixty feet in Ileigth, 
more than a quarter of a mile Long, and about half that width. The 
Foot of which this River passes by. on which a noble Fortress might 
be erected for the Protection of the Country; the Marshes sur- 
rounding it for a Mile distance except towards the Bason, would 
render it impregnable and large Ships cannot approach within half 
a mile, and that only upon the top of High Water, and in great 
Danger by the Rapidity of the Tide and their grounding in two 
hours. 

'Twould be difficult for the Enemy to transport Cannon, across 
the Country, if not wholly impracticable, the Soil is deep and clayey, 
therefore the Inhabitant- make no use of Wheel Carriages, but drag 
their Merchandize as above ( in a Canoe about Seven feet long. & 
wide euo to hold a Hog 1 ' & made for the Purpose) from Bay Vert is 
4 mile to the Brook above mention'd, from old Chiegnecto to Bay 
Vert I measured Six Leagues. 

To Divide the Marshes the French Inhabitants are possest of, for 
they have possest themselves of all that is valuable, and to allot a 
proportionable part to the Protestant Settlers is of uie utmost con- 
sequence since without that I am sure it would be morrally impos- 
sible any large Number of Protestants can ever be settled in the 
Country, and the Reason is that they are lands that can be improved 
in perpetual Tillage, and the only Lands for certain Crops of 
Grains in the Country. Ten Acres allotted to every Family will 
produce. Wheat, Rye. Barley. Oats. Flax &c for a full and comfort 
able Support for them; On the Contrary the Uplands are not kind 
for Grain &c but produce excellent English Grass, and no Soone 
are the Lands clear'd and laid open to the Sun, but they naturally 
run into English Grass which is much heartier for the support of 
their Cattle in the Winter then their Salt Meddow Hay what Lands 
I have seen in improvement in the Country of the T'pland fene'd in 
for Grass has produced as large Crops as ever I saw in New England 
and that without the help of Manure. They will also produce frui 
Trees of all kinds Natural to the Climate. 

Tlie unimprov'd Woods will always be a pasture from May to 
October for their Sheep Cattle Horses &e and will fatten them fit for 
the market; An Equivalent therefore may be assigned them, in 
Landts adjoining their Settlements, in the manner aforesaid and 
without any detriment to the present Settlers; only some Labour 
without which, they in a manner now live, for they raise their Pro- 
vision with the least Labour of any People upon Earth.

Another Advantage will arise, thai the Protestants will be inter- 
inixt with thi' present Inhabitants, and consequently an Intercourse 
of Trade and intermarriages, whereby in Time they will come to 
have one Common Interest & mutually send out Colonies to settle 
the Inland Countrys. 

The above is humbly submitted 

by Charles Morris.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 29b 

Sept. 16. Murray to Gage. Has received his letter of Aug. 27. Again 

Quebec. refers to the matters of his military commission; not superseded by 

his patent as governor. Thinks it will be necessary for Governor 
to command troops in province for some years to come, under the 
Commander in Chief. Intends to assert his military authority as 
military governor of the town of Quebec, until His Majesty's pleasure 
is known to the contrary. 
Sept- 16 - Murray to his brother, Lord Elibank. Speaks of " the Plot of 

Divesting me of my Military Command, as being now pretty 
evident ; M r Gage's letter puts it beyond doubt. Expected to 
be continued in his command (as Brigadier). Province must be 
governed by military force; not more than fifty Protestant subjects 
in province, exclusive of troops: must choose magistracy from among 
them: their authority must rest on supreme magistrate's authority 
with the troops ; otherwise " The Brigadier must in fact be the 
" Governor," to the oppression of the people, and the detriment of 
the province; begs him to present the case to the ministry at home. 
Speaks of the boundless powers of a commander in chief in 
America, and of the necessity - of some control, some division of 
Military Authority in this vast Empire ; is sure the provinces 
can never reunite ; civil and military governors powerless in respect 
of commander in chief: cannot govern province unless he has 
authority with the troops ; limits of his authority to be determined 
by Government. Task of governing in the Civil way, a great 
populous country of a different religion without the aid of the 
troops, or the assistance of the Law would be too hard for him. 
Characterizes the two lawyers sent from England as ignorant and 
greedy. 



Sept. 20. Murray to his brother. Admiral Murray. Declares his intention 

Quebec. of settling, for the remainder of his days, in the New World, and 

gives his reasons for wishing to do so. Praises the Indian character. 
Has had a letter from the Admiral's son, Patrick. 

Oct. 2. Murray to Thinks he has done right in writing to the 

Commissioners of the Customs, etc., re subject of his letter. Advises 
him as to how he should act in relation to Lieut. Hill. 

Oct. 7 Murray to Gage. Has received his letters of Sept. 17 and IS 

Will not interfere with his appointment to the command of the 
troops at Montreal, though the appointment really rests with him as

•' have every thing settled from England."

tions in regard to the matter will ever be altered. 
[Note. Both the above letters are stiff and formal.]

General of Stores ifc Provisions, and his deputation to a M r Goldfrap.

ance as an old and steady friend. States ease, and refers to his 
letter to Halifax. 

Murray to Lord Eglinton. Same subject. Encloses papers, copies 
of correspondence with (iage, etc. 

To the same. Is sending letter by his secretary, M r Cramahe, 
who will inform II. M. servants of everything relative to this 
Country. Makes strong plea for "a miserable people" who "must 
" now either abandon their all, or submit to the Persecution of the 
''most cruel, Ignorant, rapacious Fanatics, who ever existed." Speaks 
of French Canadians as " perhaps the best and bravest Race on the 
" Globe." and needing only to " be indulged with a very few Pri- 
" vileges " [as Catholics], in order to ''become the most faithful & 
" useful set of men in this American Empire."' Xiegs him, for 
find's sake, to secure his retirement if the "Popish [penal] laws 
" must be Exerted w* Rigour in Canada," as he cannot be witness to 
the misery of a people whom he loves and admires. Praises Cra- 1 
mahe very highly. 

Murray to Lord Elibank. To the same effect [almost verbatim's 
Has recommended Cramache for Lt. Governor of .Montreal. Will 
inform Elibank of " the Intrigues of Brigadiers, Judges, Lawyers, 
" & Fanatics " he has to contend with. Hopes Cramahe will conti- 
nue as Judge Advocate on American staff, even if made Lt. Governor 
of Montreal. 

Murray to Ellis, Sec y at War. Transmitting return of all^pay 
issued to staff officers, since the taking of Quebec. Will be delivered 
by Cramahe. Again urges appointment of garrison surgeon, and 
recommends D r Mabane. Explains why he sent Cramahe to Eng- 
land, before notifying the commander in chief. 

Murray to Oswald. This letter is substantially the same as that to 
Lord Elibank, dated Oct. 27, 1764, pp. 132-4.

the Board of Trade in form, and encloses copies of all he has laid 
before them. Introduces Cramahe. Expresses thanks for kindness 
shewn. 

Murray to Amherst. Has received his letter by M. Lotbiniere, and 
will shew him every attention possible. Refers to Burton's appoint- 
ment as Brigadier, and to Amherst's alleged views re military powers 
of Governor of Quebec ; cannot believe Amherst's friends are spread- 
ing these reports. Cramahe will report on the matter. Other details; 
officers' exchanges, etc. 

Murray to Lord Halifax. Re his differences with Gage and Bur- 
Ion; condition of affairs at Montreal, "the Civil and Military are 
" Inveterate Enemies." 

Murray to the Rev Dr. Barton.. Has received his letter, bibles 
and prayer books. Has desired Cramahe to deliver this letter, and 
to give him information re state of religion in Canada. Missionaries, 
if sent, should be able to speak French, and be men of great modera- 
tion and exemplary lives. The one Protestant e'ergyman in the Prov- 
ince (the Chaplain at Quebec) does not possess these qualifications.

dicting false reports, etc. Speaks of the many " malicious lies " he 
will have to combat in England, and of Cuthbert's account of the 
success of his (Murray's) enemies. Would desist from the conflict, 
and leave the field to Burton and Christie, but for his affection for 

a brave Valuable Race," his love of his country, and his own 
peace of mind. Wonders how change of ministry at home will affect 
the Colony and himself. Believes that Halifax encouraged Burton, 
&c, " to foment & keep up the factions of the English traders here " 
against his government. Defends his own conduct; refers to Court 
of enquiry (re Major Brown) ; encloses copies of correspondence, 
papers, etc., relating thereto; begs his intervention with Lord George 
Sackville. Gives favourable report of 52 nd regiment. Letter sent by 
Panet, whom he recommends to his good offices. 

Murray to Sec 5, at War. Encloses papers re his dispute with 
Major Brown (refusal to admit Governor to capital), in order that 
they may be laid before His Majesty. Goes into details of the dis- 
pute: thinks Burton expected support from Gage; wishes matter 
laid before a Board of General Officers; justifies his own conduct. 
Explains his interpretation of the powers granted to the Civil Gov- 
ernor in respect of the garrison of Quebec; refers to Secretary's 
letters of Jan. 12, and of May 18. Has sent copy of latter, with 
remarks, to commander in chief; will abide by his decision until 
honoured with H. M. commands. Considers military government 
of Town of Quebec the highest honour which can be conferred on 
him. 

Murray to W m Gray, Dep y Sheriff, Montreal. Re letter from Lt.- 
Col. Christie, purporting to give substance of sheriff's rematrks as to 
unwillingness of bailiffs to act, and pains taken to corrupt the 
people (of Montreal) ; and calling on him to give full account of 
all he knows, and why he failed to inform the Government of the 
attempt referred to. 

Murray to Capt. Carden (Montreal). Has received his letter of 
the 12 th instant. Thinks it will be better to accommodate the soldiers 
at Three Rivers in their old barracks, for this year. Explains his 
position as civil governor in relation to the matter. Goes into various 
details, concerning which he makes recommendations. 

Murray to Burton. Re injunctions to parishes near La Chine to 
furnish men for sixteen batteaux in question. Xeither Government

nor magistracy will be blamed, if any prejudice to the service results 
from the steps taken. Magistrates have no power to impress men 
for batteau service; approves of their conduct in the matter; explains 
the " special limited warrant * granted to Capt. Fraser the previous 
winter; and the reason of his letter to Col. Christie in Oct.. 1764; 
criticizes Christie's conduct : accused of having "made very improper 
uses" of his powers under the military government; will be very 
cautious about giving him a general press warrant. Attorney Gen- 
eral declares press warrants illegal. Will not issue press warrant 
for batteaux service, under present conditions, until authorized 
thereto by His Majesty. Wishes him to regulate his convoys so as 
not to interfere with seed time. " the Harvest and tillage of the 
ground." To take a number of men away at this season, is to expose 
them to famine and the King's stores to unnecessary risks. Is a 
matter of conscience with him: thinks the business should be done 
by contract. Expresses his zeal for the King's military concerns, 
in spite of "the Calumny; Intrigue & deceit of designing men." 
Be his instructions to Capt. Carden. 

Murray to Montreal Justices of the Peace. Same subject (press 
warrant for batteaux service). Commends their conduct in the 
matter, and encloses copy of his foregoing letter to Burton. Urges 
great patience, humanity, and infinite tenderness, in dealing with 
the " New Subjects." Refers to Carden's instructions re quarters 
for the troops. 

Murray to Burton. Has received his letters of Oct. 13 and 19. 
His own, of Oct. 9 (supra) is an answer to the first; the press war- 
rant, enclosed for Capt. Fraser, to the second. Regrets loss of 
vessel; hopes Commander in Chief will not allow subsistence of troops 
to depend on safety of one ship. Wishes to know why soldiers may 
not assist in transporting the king's stores; but hns granted warrant 
to Fraser, under present necessity. Blames Christie for disputing 
Fraser's former authority, and holds him responsible for the " Cor- 
ruption" and "Poison" (prnong the people) of which he now com- 
plains. Wishes he would try to moderate Christie's conversation; 
Canadians must inevitably be influenced by constant disparagement 
of ''a Governor who is to be recalled immediately." Reminds him 
that "the Civil Governor has no Coercive Power to empress Men 
" for the Services in Question " ; will most certainly not issue a 
c econd " impress Order ". . . " this is fair warning." 

Murray to Lords of Trade. See CO. 42. vol. 5. Pp. 95-98. 

Murray to Cramahe. Thanks him for his many letters, and for 
his service's to the Colony. Be Major Mills' services and pay as 
Town Major; is glad Cramahe gave Grenville an account of the 
duties and revenues collected in Quebec; reasons for publishing 
them in the Gazette. Be Martin's bills: defends his own conduct in 
the matter. Ask? him to be civil to bearer of letter, M. " Leveque ". 

Murray to Lord Adam Gordon. Be his differences with Gage and 
Burton, encloses paragraph of letter from the former (1) Refers 
to Burton's attempt to mortify him in ervery way possible: "he 
"insisted on giving me Orders" (2 and 3). Details of authority 
assumed by Burton (4 and 5), and of his rebuff by the barrack 
master (5) ; full account of Burton's conduct, etc. Refers him to 
his own answer to General Gage f6); leaves the whole matter in his 
correspondent's hands.

ray's) conduct. Is now hopeful of bringing the vesel (the Colony) 
to a " happy mooring." Speaks, confidently, of having got the 
better of his military enemies; English merchants now look upon 
everything in a right light, and the Canadians are more attached 
to him than ever. Complains, however, of want of support and en- 
couragement from home; re Walker's trial, and lack of Protestant 
jurors in Montreal; settlement of currency; hardships entailed on 
Province by Mutiny Act for America; their own action in the matter. 
Regrets Sir James Cockburn's departure ; wishes Colonel Oswald

Murray to Lords of Trade. See CO. 42, vol. 5, pp. 29-34. 

Murray to the Rt. Hon. H. Seymour Conway. Congratulates 
him on his appointment; hopes affairs of province will now be soon 
settled ; refers to fact that Cramahe has been over twelve months in 
England re "many things which required immediate redress ", but 
that nothing has been done as yet. 

Gage to Murray. - Re his letter, with Quebec accounts, estimates, 
etc. Complains of Murray's not having answered his letter of Feb. 
17, and of his having ordered Chandler, the barrack master at 
Quebec, to apply to Burton for his pay ; cannot understand this 
" sudden change ", etc. Consents to repairs requiring immediate 
attention; barrack master must conform to the "General Rules and 
'* Regulations made for the Barracks in America." Adverts to a 
letter received from Burton re " his Transactions at Quebec ", and 
to his complaint of the "Very Rude Stile" of Surgeon D r Mabane's 
letter to him. Will be his (Gage's) business " to lay this whole 
" Transaction before the Secretary at War." 

Murray to Gage; in answer to the foregoing. Knows Mabane 
never meant to offend Burton ; who had his positive orders to enclose 
his (Murray's) letter to him, to Burton. Admits duty of every 
officer to support and maintain the authority and dignity of H. M. 
servants, but adds that " had that Rule been observed towards the 
" King's Governor & Governm 1 in this Province, the public must have 
" long ago felt the happy Consequences." Hopes complaint refer- 
red to " will be productive of an Enquiry into Characters 
" and Things which have been shamefully misrepresented." Ex- 
press?s his readiness to answer to Sec y at War for his conduct, on all 
points. 

[This letter is followed by one from Murray to Chandler dated 
Sept. 5 (See under that date) ; one from the same to D r Mabane 
(Sept. 3). denying Burton's authority over surgeon of Quebec gar- 
rison, and one from Mabane to Burton re same matter.] 

Murray to Ellis (beginning of letter missing). Give his reasons 
for establishing the prerogative court in the province; encloses paper 
stating case : re Ellis's right to " the .Testamentary Business," and 
explains what the consequences will be : he will " have a right to a 
" great deal more which will totally overset every Establishment we 
" have made, and will constitute Rules and practice which never 
" had a being in any other Colony in His Majesty's Dominions ;" 
thinks " an answer to the case and queries will effectually settle " 
the right referred to.

3 GEORGE V., A. 1913 

Cramahe to Murray. Regrets his non-success, hitherto, " from a 
'" Concurrence of untowardly Circumstances," in laying the state of 
the Province (Quebec) "before the men in Power". Believes they 
acted on the principle of " procuring Happiness to the People, and 
" of rendering that Country serviceable to this ". Will stay the 
winter " to endeavour at obtaining a final Settlement" of the matter. 
Thought it right to lay before the present ministers when they 
" began to do Business in the present state of the Province with 
" regard to the principal Points requiring a Speedy Consideration 
"viz. Church, Law, and Revenue"'. Have not yet reached any con- 
clusion. Thinks France not eager for a new war. Re prospect of a 
final settlem?nt of the " Canada Bills."' 

Ken th McCulloek to Murray. Refers to the " Confusion that now 
" prevails in this Province ; to the charges trumped up by " the 
"famous Walker" against certain officers; means taken to arrest 
them; speaks of Walker's "malice", and of " Men of Distinguished 
"Honour and Probity", as having been "dragged to the common 
" Gaol ", etc. 

Surgeon Mabane to Murray. Same subject. Also, re his own dis- 
missal by Carleton's orders, etc. Speaks of the Colony as " plunged 
" into the greatest Confusion and of Carleton's desire to throw 
the blame on others. 

Colonel Maitland to Murray. Refers to Ministry's intention to 
call him (Murray) home " in order to be properly informed of the 
" Real Situation of that Province in order to have your Assistance 
" in forming A proper form of Government for it ". Gives reasons 
for thinking American colonists " absolutely incapable of carrying 
" on A Rebellion if they were to enter into it " ; every Province a 
"'Real Democracy: and there is not a Single man in the Country 
" Dependant upon Another ". Refers to the " avertion " taken by 
the people of New York to Murray, on account of his having put 
the Stamp Act into force, and of a speech he is said to have made. 
[Curious and interesting.] 

James Oswald to Murray. Thinks his presence "on the spot" 
will afford him the best opportunity of counteracting " The Torrent 
" of Malice and faction " poured upon him, by setting his conduct 
" in Its true and Proper light ". 

Part of Murray's answers to the Articles of Complaint against 
him. (cf. Bundle IX, infra, for those answers in extenso. [Xote. 
His defence of his conduct in relation to the French Canadians 
may be quoted, verbatim being of special interest: he supposes that 
the charge means that " I could not be prevailed upon to persecute 
" His Majesty's Roman Catholick Subjects in Canada. If so I plead 
" Guilty ". He adds, in reference to this point, though under another 
article [12], that he "displeased the little Protestant Traders, 
"who all, Quakers, Puritans, Anabaptists, Presbiterians, Atheists, 
" Infidels and even Jews joined in protesting against any Considera- 
" tion being paid to the poor Canadians." ] (cf. Murray to Eglinton, 
Oct. 27, 176b. M. 898, B.) 

Walter Murray to Murray. Chiefly personal. Approves of his 
determination not to return to " the frozen Region of Canada," of

The Comte de Viry to M. le Batlli de Solar (autograph). Has 
transmitted H. E.'s letter to M r Stanley. Refers to an event, 
which he appears to consider favourable to the accomplishment of 
their hopes [for peace]. 

[No eopy of M. le Bailly de Solar's autograph reply, dated Dec. 4, 
to this letter has been preserved]. 

The same to the same. Hag received his letter of the 13" 1 
instant. Hopes his letter of previous week has been received, and 
made use of with a certain "Person who. I know, esteems you 
" highly ". 

Solar to Viry. Acknowledges receipt of letter of Nov. 27: has 
made use of the former one, as above suggested. Encloses copy of 
•' the Person's " answer, which Viry may make such use of as he 
shall deem advisable. Insists, strongly, on the need of prudence and 
eircumpeetion. Hints that " a Power " [England] certainly does 
" not desire peace '*. Has not, however, informed their own court 
[Sardinia] of their correspondence. Reasons for secrecy. 

Copy of the Duke de Choiseul's note to Solar. Re passports for 
Mess 15 Pitt and Fox. Has read Viry's letter to his cousin. Assures 
him of the King's confidence in the King of Sardinia's friendship 
and of their willingness to listen to any proposals made by the 
latter's ministers. Suggests this as answer to Viry's two letters. 
Solar's remarks on the above note sent to Viry, are to the effect that 
it must be regarded merely as a personal compliment, to which no 
attention should be paid. 

Solar to Viry. Asking him, in connexion with the above note, to 
confine himself to verbal communications : to give no copies to any 
one, but to burn the note as soon as he shall have communicated its 
contents. 

Viry to Solar. Refers to his letter of Nov. 17. Tells him, for 
such use as he shall deem advisable to make of it, that the present 
British ministry are quite willing to make a separate peace between 
France and England. Would need, however, to be offered to them. 

The same to the same. Has informed the King of Sardinia of 
his letter of Nov. 17, and will do so in regard to this one. Details 
re cost of army commanded by Prince Ferdinand; annual Treaty 
with King of Prussia, etc. Agains refers to separate peace.

1 GEORGE V, A. 1911 

Copy of two letters from Solar to Viry. 

1. Feb. 1, 1762. Has communicated views of British ministers re 
separate peace, Spain, etc. to ministers at Versailles, and forwarded 
Viry's letters: now sends him the Due de Choiseul's note, which 
must be considered confidential: Assures him that it conveys the 
real feelings of the French court. Reports interview with the Due 
and the Comte de Choiseul; their views as to British peace proposals, 
etc. Suggest a secret mission, on the part of the British Govern- 
ment. Matters left in his hands and in Viry's; might be settled 
in six weeks. In case of failure, in this instance, it would be better 
they should go no further in the matter of peace proposals. 

2. Same date. [Second letter.] Thinks it advisable to explain 
certain Articles in his letter of even date, and in the Due de Choi- 
seuls's note. Re Allies, Spain, Germany, etc. Confirms assurances 
contained in his former letter. 

Solar to Viry. Re certain passports, despatches, etc. 

Viry to Solar. Has just received his letter of the 5 th . Reports 
his friends in the City as well satisfied with Solars course of action. 
Is not sure that speedy news would be the beet news. 

Solar to Viry. Has received his letter of Jan. 26. Has commu- 
nicated with his friends in Lyons, who are as well disposed as Viry's 
friends. Question of their " making a trade " on the terms specified 
in his letter of Feb. 1. 

The same to the same. Forwards parcel left for him by M r Pitt, 
when on his way to Turin. Hopes his letters have been received. 
Again refers to " reasonable prices ", and to " Lyons merchants ". 

Viry to Solar. Has received his letters. Will attend to " the 
V business " as soon as the Sieur le Roux arrives. Will send the 
passports asked for. 

The same to the same. Re the Comte d'Estaing. Encloses copy of 
Lord Egremont's letter [infra]. 

The Earl of Egremont to the Due de Choiseul. Re the Comte 
d'Estaing. English Government willing to act generously : his un- 
conditional release.

Viry to Solar. Has received letters brought by Le Roux. Will 
see his friends in the City. 

Solar to Viry. Re the Due de Choiseul, Lord Egremont. d'Bstaing, 
etc. Is much pleased with Viry's share in the matter; speaks of 
" the truly royal generosity " of George III. 

The same to the same. Same subject. Forwards memorandum 
from the Maltese ambassador. 

D'Estaing to Solar. Complains of his treatment by the English;

" foreign houses " may have given them a taste for those sent by his 
" Lyons Correspondents ". It rests with Viry's friends to " renew

Orleans. 

The same to the same. Transmits sense of interview with British 
minister re Solar's letter of February 1, and the Due de Choiseul's 
note of January 23. Somewhat hurt at imputation of attempt to 
rouse the jealousy of the allies of France; protest the honesty of 
their intentions; surprised at evidences of distrust. Had taken 
advantage of the cessation of warfare to ascertain the feelings of 
France in respect of peace; de Bussy and Stanley ultimatums not 
necessarily the basis of new negotiations. Their views in regard to 
Spain, and a separate peace. Their regret at the apparent failure 
of peace negotiations. War with Spain should not prevent conclu- 
sion of a separate peace between France and England. 

The same to the same. Has been able to use his second letter of 
Feb. 1, and Choiseul's note re allies of France. Regrets expressions 
of French distrust, which have delayed a possible agreement. Each 
country must lay aside any ideas as to the financial condition of the 
other, and its relation to the continuation of the war. 

The same to the same. Is sending Lord Egremont's letter to the 
Due de Choiseul, with accompanying Declaration, to the Chevalier 
Ossorio, under cover (open) to him. Explains why he is doing so. 

Th e same to the Chevalier Ossorio. Is sending him a copy of 
letter from Lord Egremont to the Due de Choiseul, and of the 
declaration concerning peace annexed thereto. Has also sent copies 
of both to Bailli de Solar. 

The same to Solar. Is sending him a letter from Lord Egremont 
to the Due de Choiseul, and a copy of the declaration referred to. 
He will see, from their contents, how the British ministers stand 
in regard to peace. 

Lord Egremont to the Due de Choiseul. [Copy.] Eefers to 
King's pleasure in granting d'Estaing's unconditional release. Is 
instructed to convey His Majesty's sincere desire to come to an 
agreement with His Most Catholic Majesty. Will include Spain 
in the negotiations, if necessary for obtaining peace. Matter might 
be taken up again at the point where the breach occurred. Encloses 
Declaration, referred to. 

Copy of Declaration made by H. M. the King of Great Britain. 

Proposes that Ministers should be sent by each country, to resume 
negotiations on the basis of the two last ultimatums. Will induce 
his allies to send Ministers to the Congress if the other belligerent 
powers will do the same.

Lord Bute to Viry. [Copy.] Would be very glad to see peace

at a comprehension of each other's- point of view. Gives reasons 
for his hopefulness.

given in his letter. No separate peace can be concluded or nego- 
tiated without notifying Spain. Points to be arranged: (1) Dif- 
ferences between Spain and England : (2) French and English pos- 
sessions in America, Africa and Asia: (3) The war in Germany and 
the allies of the two Crowns. Details relating to each point: (1) 
Prizes made in time of peace: to be referred to the civil courts: (2) 
English settlements in Honduras : (3) The Newfoundland cod- 
fishery — only two Spanish ships engaged in it. French claims as to 
restitution of territory in America. Africa, and Asia: two last ulti- 
matums might be taken as basis: France willing to restore Minorca 
and to withdraw troops from Germany : will be easy to extend terms 
of peace betw-eeu France, England and Spain to their respective 
allies. Reasons for adopting so unusual a method of treating so 
important a matter: Viry has permission to communicate this letter 
to Loud Bute. 

The Cornte de Choiseul to Solar. [Copy.] Is sending him his 
letter to Lord Egremont, with a copy: contains all that he could 
have put in a counter-declaration. France will do everything pos- 
sible to facilitate the Articles therein referred to.

willing to end war. Necessity of including Spain in any peace

dums before sending ministers. Might be based on the two last 
ultimatums. Question of peace in Germany might be postponed 
until Fiance, Spain and England agree to a suspension of arms.

ters. 

Solar to Viry [First letter. Copy.] Same subject. Sends him 
copies of the Comte de Choiseul's letter to Lord Egremont, etc. 
Hopes England will make the same declaration to Spain as to

be made in less than three weeks, but they are hampered by Spanish

fidence in Lord Bute and Lord Egremont.

claims. Important that England should assist Portugal. In regard 
to Germany, the Due de Choiseul does not want a CongTess, but Eng- 
land, France and Spain, once they have come to an agreement, 
can unite to make the German powers accept a reasonable peace. 
France will surrender Wesel to Prussia as soon as pea<» is made on

Memorandum, feels sure England will grant, to all intents and pur-

English ministry to put the last touch to the business. Does not 
think England will miss peace for the sake of St. Lucia. 

Viry to Solar. Cipher and other letters received, shewn to Lord 
Bute, and burnt. Lord Bute strongly in favour of a secret negotia- 
tion between France and England. Assures him that he says nothing 
to their Court [Sardinia] about this correspondence. 

The same to the same. Solar's letter of May 30, and Choiseul's 
detailed note of May 23, received June 3. Delays referred to due 
to King's illness. Now sends papers received from Lord Egremont: 
replies to the Due de Choiseul's Memorandum, etc. Feels sure Egre- 
mont would have acted differently, had it been possible to do so. 
Would take too long to explain their motives. 

Lord Egremont to Viry. Sends him his Memorandum in reply to 
Choiseul's of May 29. Surprised to find so little in agreement with 
what he had been led to expect. Changes in Cabinet have strength- 
ened British ministry. Cannot agree with Choiseul in regar.l io 
Germany: thinks change of Russian policy would be a counterpoise 
in favour of England, should peace fail to be made. Hopes Mes- 
sieurs de Choiseul will be able to induce Spain to adopt a peaceful 
policy. Will await reply of French Ministry as deciding the fate of 
the negotiation. 

Lord Egremont's Memorandum. Gives answers in detail to 
articles in Choiseul's Memorandum, on which they do not agree. 
There seems to be an agreement in respect of the Cession of Can- 
ada, eighteen months for emigration, and fishing rights on the Banks 
and in Gulf of St. Lawrence. England holds to her first offer re St. 
Pierre and Miquelon. Did not expect France would make difficulties 
in regard to the Mississippi arrangement and to St. Lucia. Thinks 
compensation asked for in return for Martinique was very 
moderate, and speaks of the very doubtful claims of France to 
St. Lucia. As to alleged danger to Martinique from England's hold- 
ing St. Lucia; he contends that Barbadoes would be in greater dan- 
ger should the French continue to hold St. Lucia. England asked 
for both banks of the Mississippi chiefly in order to establish 
peace upon solid and lasting foundations and to avoid all dis- 
putes concerning the limits of the two Nations on the continent of 
America. In respect of Africa, England is not aware of any 
trading-post still belonging to France in that part of the world: the 
phrase without prejudice to their trading posts needs explaining. 
As to East Indies, England offers to restore French trading-posts 
on Coromandel and Malabar Coast, but retains the Bengal post; 
Companies to settle details when preliminaries have been arranged. 
England cannot agree to proposed French arrangements re evacua- 
tion of places belonging to Prussia, etc., without previously commu- 
nicating with the King of Prussia, and the Emperor of Russia. 
Proposes that France and England shall withdraw the armies 
kept in pay by the two crowns, now in Germany. Hopes that 
what has been proposed will not meet with difficulties of such a kind 
as to cause the failure of a work whose conclusion is ardently 
desired. 

Viry to Solar. Has forwarded the Oomte de Choiseul's letter to 
Lord EgTemont, and a copy of the letter to Solar. Has discussed 
all the letters, etc., with Lord Bute and M r Mackenzie. Impossi-

Also feels sure of Spain : Grimaldi ordered to be guided by him in 
everything. Peace depends upon the Island of St. Lucia. 

Another letter of the same day. Enclosing despatch for M. de S. 
Severino. Speaks of him as a very dangerous Prince, and one to 
be mistrusted. Explanations as to George Grenville, the Neapo- 
litan ambassador (S. Severino), Choiseul, Grimaldi, and present 
treaty: Viry not to deliver despatch until he has seen English 
ministers, and warned them against said ambassador. The whole 
matter has been arranged with Mess™ de Choiseul. Again urges 
haste : " for God's sake, let us hurry, and get a very speedy answer 
" to this despatch." 

The same to the same. Re letters despatched, and how his letters 
are to be sent. French ministers worried at long silence of English. 

Notes on the Memorandum of Terms sent to London, June 28, 1762. 

1. As agreed between the two Courts. 

2. Agreed, as relates to fishing on Banks and in Gut? of St. Law- 
rence, and drying-places on Nfd. coast, as by treaty of Utrecht. 
Difficult to define off shore distance, but can easily be arranged in 
final treaty. 

3. France hopes England will admit the justice as weft as the 
moderation of her claim [respecting He Royale] : but asks that the 
oppression reasonable inspection of Lord Egremont's Memo of 
June 28 be used, instead of the commissioner named in th first 
Memo of the Court of London. 

4. Agreed. [Demolition of Dunkirk.] 

u. Claim to whole of left bank of Mississippi would involve ces- 
sion of New Orleans and of Louisiana. Line to pass by lakes Mau- 
repas and Pontchartrain — granted. Map annexed. 

6. Courts agreed as to this Article, except re Grenada. 

7. Principles re Neutral Islands, laid down by England, adopted 
by France. Not a question of cession, but of defining rights. 

8. No trade in Island of Goree: reasons why France asks equal 
trading rights on Senegal river, and reservation of trading-posts. 

9. Granted. 

10. Agreed. 

11. France adopts proposal of M. de Viry's letter; copy herewith. 
No troops paid by Great Britain to serve with King of Prussia. 
That Crown might induce its allies to agree to a suspension of arms 
when French troops evacuate Germany. 

12. This Article is at the disposal of the King of Fngland. 

13. Agreed for all time. 

14. We do not think it open to any objection. 

15. France asks that surrenders on Coromandel and Malabar 
coasts shall be clearly defined in preliminary Articles. Claim to 
Bengal post, etc. Asks England to say exactly what her proposed 
arrangements are. 

16. Above explanations seem to remove all difficulties in the way 
of peace.

(2) Logwood. — No objection to Article in present form. 

(3) Fishery rights. — A right that cannot be withheld. 

(4) Surrender of Conquests. — A necessary consequence of the 
peaceful intentions of the two Crowns. 

Grimaldi to the Due de Choiseul. [In Spanish]. Speaks of 
preliminary Articles in conformity with the principles of equity and 
justice, and states that the King his master, will draw up his 
demands on the same principles. 

The Comte de Choiseul to Solar. Only three articles on which 
French ministry think differently from English : St. Lucia, New 
Orleans, and Germany, yet are agreed on these three points. Has 
not been able to frame Articles 6 and 12 in his draft of Preliminary 
Articles, as it is intended to grant them. Letter strictly confidential. 

The Due de Choiseul to Solar. Thinks English ministry should 
sign Spanish articles as framed by Grimaldi : would put the two 
countries on the same footing as before the war. Suggests two 
observations: (1) Re quantities and qualities of logwood: (2) Re 
continuation of old treaties until conclusion of definite commercial 
treaty.

ministers need only endorse Art, 6 as " agreed," and return. [Articles 
6 (Mississippi) and 12 (Wesel & Guelders) follow]. 

Draft of Preliminary Articles agreed to between France and Eng- 
land. 

Art. 1. Hostilities to cease on signature of preliminaries.

tofore; liberty of emigration.

Observations on the foregoing, with introductory Note. 
Art. 1. Is the aim and purpose of the present negotiation. 

" 2. Agrees with Art. 1 of the Note; but notes that it is put 
positively in the present instead of conditionally and 
in the future. 

" 3. Prohibited areas to be referred to the definite Treaty. 
" 4. Seems to present no difficulty. 

5 Copied from the Note. 
" 6. Matter not clearly understood hitherto: Art. 5 of Note 
would have included New Orleans and Louisiana: 
England now obtains all she could wish for. 
" 7. Is the same as Art. 6 of Note, with the addition of Marti- 
nique. 

" 8. Cession of St. Lucia to France a sine qua non. 
" 9. The two nations are agreed, and it seems unnecessary 

to make stipulations in respect of trade. 
" 10 and 11. Copied from Articles 9 and 10 of the Note. 
" 12. [Wesel, etc.] Three alternative Articles submitted to 

Great Britain. 
" 13. [Prizes.] Left to the equity of H. B. M.

" 15. '[East Indies.] Essentially the same as in the Note: 

one clause needs to be explained. 
" 16. This is the constant usage of all treaties of Peace.

" 18. Explanations re time set for various evacuations. 
" 19. Was in last year's Preliminaries: just and reciprocal. 
" 20. Date of departure of several ambassadors to be agreed

2. St. Lucia, which appears to be the sole real obstacle to peace. 

3. Wesel and Guelders. 

Allies on either side must be considered. Advantages now granted, 
to be taken into account. 

(a) Much wider limits of Canada conceded, (b) 3 out of 4 
Neutral West India islands ceded to Great Britain, (c) The acqui- 
sition of Grenada and the Grenadines.

The Due de Nivernois to Lord Egremont and Lord Bute. Anx- 
ions to know British ministry's intentions in regard to Dunkirk. 

Lord Egremont to the Due de Nivernois. Reply to the foregoing. 

Viry to Solar. Be delay in sending instructions to the Duke of 
Bedford; speaks of certain insinuations made as being respon- 
sible. Letter written to Egremont re Dunkirk came very near to 
rekindling the war. Thinks want of understanding between France 
and Great Britain may wreck " the great building we two have 
worked so hard at." 

The same to the same. Encloses letter from Lord Bute re chief 
difficulties met with in drawing up final treaty. Solar is to use it 
as he thinks best. 

Lord Bute to Viry. Beport of proceedings in Council : based all 
his arguments upon the Preliminaries agreed to. Two possible points 
of disagreement: the boundaries of Bengal and Coromandel, and the 
demolition of Dunkirk. (1) Will abide by best French maps. (2) 
Refers to Nivernois' letter, as " insulting to our engineers," and to 
another phrase as " a manifest violation of this Article of the Preli- 
minaries." Necessity of including this Article in the final Treaty. 
The two Articles referred to regarded as sine quibiAS non. 

Solar to Viry. In answer to his three letters of ine 22 nd . Thinks 
that Lord Egremont is not in good faith; and that the Duke of 
Bedford is being very badly treated. Thinks there will be no further 
difficulty in connexion with Bengal. Is sending him a copy of the 
Due de Choiseul's letter re Dunkirk: how the matter should be 
understood — Treaty of Aix la Chapelle, etc. 

The same to the same. France has no intention of annulling 
Article 6 of the Preliminaries.

Pralin, re " ceremonial " disputes between British and French am- 
bassadors at the Court of Vienna. 

The Due de Pralin to Solar. Letter above referred to. Same 
subject. 

The Due de Choiseul to Solar. Is surprised at Lord Bute's letter 
to Viry : defends course and good faith of French ministers. Speaks 
of " each day bringing us a new and outrageous claim on the part of 
" England ". Complains of the engineer sent to Dunkirk : " A rene- 
•" gade Frenchman " of 75. Will wager that peace will be made. 
France will make no sacrifices in order to guard against the tricks 
(" Fourberies ") of Lord EgTemont, or to keep Lord Bute (in power). 

The Due de Choiseul to Solar. Is sending a courier to London. 
Would like to see him at Versailles.

Vol. 2.

Vergennes to Gerard, N°. 1. He is not to interfere in the matter 
which concerns Deane; but must induce him to stay with the Con- 
gress, in order to promote unity among its members. France is 
not yet at war with England. The squadron commanded by 
D'Estaing is intended to convince the Americans of the King's 
intention of protecting and strengthening their independence. What 
Gerard should say to them on this head. Part to be played by the 
deputies to the Congress in regard to obtaining convoys for the 
French merchants trading with America. Spain persists in her 
resolution and in her disapproval. She holds closely to the family 
compact. The arrival of her fleet may bring about a fortunate 
change of views on her part. Gerard's conduct in all that relates 
to this power must be in strict conformity with his instructions. 

p. 11. 

Vergennes to Gerard N°. 2. The alliance between France and 
the United States has caused universal joy in the latter country. 
Remarks re an article in the York Town Gazette referring to a 
speech of Gerard's to the American deputies, and containing the 
statement that the King was willing that the United States should 
make a separate peace with England, on the sole condition of a 
recognition of their independence. Admiral Byron, with 13 ships, 
is to sail shortly, in order to follow the King's squadron to America. 
Spain's mediation instigated by England. Negotiations for the 
restoration of peace in Germany. The Comte d'Estaing has been

Remarks on the Comte d'Estaing's plans re He St. Jean, New- 
foundland, the Bermudas, and some of the Windward Islands. The

Comte d'Estaiug, also enclosed therewith. p. 1. 

July 16. Gerard to Vergennes. _N°. Q. Documents relating to the evacua- 

tion of Philadelphia by the English [not enclosed] Congress holds 
firmly to the principle of independence. Party spirit in Congress, 
due to the disagreement of certain ambitious members. Vigorous 
action on the part of Congress, shewing that it counts on a decisive 
influence. Severity used in keeping up the currency of the paper 
money; its value is increasing. Secret abuses in trade, which 
send up the price of everything to an incredible extent ; Congress 
however, moderates them as it sees fit; he himself is disposed to 
take advantage of this lowering of prices, in respect of supplies of 
flour for the King's squadron. Advantageous condition of the con- 
tinental armies. Praises the militia and recruits. The affair at 
Monmouth would have been fatal to the English, but for General 
Lee's suspicious behaviour. Plaus of military expeditions. Havoc 
wrought by the Indians. It is thought that the English would become 
dangerous to the United States in time of peace, were they to retain 
Florida, as they do now. There is little indication of asking French 
assistance in this operation. Gerard is reticent on this point. 

for the conquest of Florida; proposed conquest of Pensacola, in 
order to offer it to Spain. Secret agent of Spain in touch with 
the Congress; favourably regarded by several members of that 
assembly. He is courting Gerard whom he has not yet put in a 
position to sound him as to his residence and his intentions; will 
be very circumspect in his endeavours to ascertain the attitude of 
the Fnited States towards Spain. He will try to get to the bottom 
of Don Miralles. Plan for the establishment of a good navy. 
General Arnold entrusted with this task. Estimation in which this 
officer is held. Declaration made by the English in the south. 

p. 18.

general officers, and prominent citizens to see him. Their expres- 
sions of gratitude for proofs of the King's generosity. Dinner given 
him (Gerard) by the Congress, of which he took advantage to talk 
confidentially with a large number of its members. The chief efforts 
of the English commissioners have been directed towards fostering 
the traditional prejudices of Americans against France. The altern- 
ative which Congress would be willing to accept rather than fail of 
executing a single point of the treaties. Popular dispositions in 
favour of France. Joy shewn by the people of Delaware on hearing 
that the King's squadron had arrived. p. 30.

Lawrence's objections to the English proposals. Debates in the Con- 
L:r>ss on the reply to the English letter. Resolution to leave the 
English Commissioners' letter unanswered. p. 34. 

Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 6. Whigs admit that the American 
government owes its present stability to the King's friendship and 
generosity. The conditions of the treaty have dispelled the distrust 
of France instilled into the Americans by the English. Means 
employed by the latter to foster among Americans their ancient 
hatred of the French name. The appearance of the King's squad- 
ron has wrecked all the means of seduction used on the Americans 
by the English . Offers made to a doubtful citizen in order to gain 
a knowledge of the French treaties; their receipt has upset the 
existence of a faction composed of certain members of the Con- 
gress, p. 38. 

Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 7. Report of the havoc wrought by 
the English army on its way through New Jersey, and at the eva- 
cuation of Philadelphia. Quakers accused of having given all kinds 
of assistance to the English army. Means runder consideration for 
the repression of the Tories. The confiscation of their property is 
regarded as one of the chief financial resources for the payment of 
the debts incurred by the Congress. Provisions plentiful in all the 
States, but their price has gone up to the level of the rarest and 
most unattainable articles 1 . p. 43. 

Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 8. Report of his interviews with Don 
Juan de Miralles, re attitude of Spain towards France and America. 
Unsuccessful attempts to carry out a plan proposed by the governor 
of South Carolina. Has induced Miralles to represent to his court 
that the Congress will not easily give up the navigation of the 
Mississippi. Result of the expedition undertaken by Major Willing. 
Plan of offering Pensacola to Spain. Miralles has allowed it to 
appear in the newspapers that letters received from Havana state 
that Spain had recognized the independence of America. Don 
Miralles insists strongly on the total exclusion of the English from 
the navigation of North America. South Carolina has received the 
treaty concluded with the King of France, with enthusiasm. Reso- 
lution of the Congress, whom he has urged to demand complete satis- 
faction for the insult offered to its members. p. 47. 

Vergennes to Gerard. N°. 3. The fight between the Bellepouk 
and the Arethusa goes to shew that hostilities were begun by the 
English. The French fleet sailed on the S th of the month; the 
English on the 9 th from Saint Helena. Lord Stormont recalled. 
Gerard instructed to inform the Congress that, with the rupture 
between France and England, the former court henceforth regards 
its conditional alliance with the United States as definite. France 
suspects England of wishing to make peace proposals to the united 
provinces, on the basis of a recognition of their independence. It 
is essential that France should forestall this attempt. The Court 
looks for a report from Gerard on the state of affairs in America. 
War declared between the Emperor of Germany and the King of 
Prussia. p. 54.

ture of a French frigate. Force commanded by La Fayette ex-

itself openly as to the positive and permanent existence of the 
treaty of alliance. Reasons that have hitherto kept the Congress 
from publishing the treaty of alliance in extenso • its unshaken reso- 
lution to stand by the treaties. The evacuation of Philadelphia 
attributed to the resolutions of the Congress; its members unani- 
mous in assuring Gerard that English intrigues and negotiations

the internal state of the Congress, also of the individual attitudes 
of the several States in respect of the authority and constitution 
of that body. Gives reasons for the delays which the Government's 
sanction of the plan of confederation and perpetual union formed 
by the Congress in regard to Maryland has hitherto encountered. 
This province rightly insists that the resources common to all the 
States shall be included in the political code. Division caused by 
the influence of the Congress on the choice of its members. The 
rivalry between Generals Washington and Gates is a matter over 
which the Congress is sharply divided. Cabal against General 
Washington, in which French officers have taken part. p. 76.

characters of the members of the Congress. Methods of arriving

Avgaei 15. report of an alleged secret negotiation between them and France, 

tor the restoration of peace. How Gerard must act towards the 
Americans, should they suspect the good faith of France in ful- 
Blling her engagements with them. Sends account of the fight off 
Ushant on the 27"' of the previous month. No decisive engagement 
has yet occurred between the armies of the Emperor and of .the 
King of Prussia. p. 104 

Philadelphia Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 16. Report to the Congress of the 

execution of the Saratoga convention. Has explained his views to 
Congress in connexion therewith. It would be a good thing were 
the King to commemorate, in France, the alliance with the United 
States, by means of a medal. The Congress has ordered one struck 
in its name to commemorate the event. p. 107. 

August 22. Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 17. False alarm caused at Phila- 

delphia by the entrance of seven English ships into the Delaware. 
General Lee declared guilty by the council of war, and suspended 
from his duties for a year: the decision has thrown the Congress 
into a difficulty. Result of the division between the generals of 
the continental army. General Mifflin has abruptly resigned, and 
is appealing to the puiblic from the proceedings of the Congress. 
False impression given by English to Americans concerning the 
destination of the King's squadron. i-. 114.

lor the documents relating to the execution of the capitulation at

to English commanders. p. 110. 

A us »st >9. Gerard to Vergennes. N". 19. Has had news of the King's 

squadron from General Sullivan; ships unable to communicate 
on account of fogs. Account of squadron's operations for the reduc- 
tion of Newport. Condition of squadron after the violent storm 
it encountered. Reasons which kept the Comte d'Estaing from 
complying with General Sullivan's wishes to renew a joint attack 
on Newport. Protest of the latter and of his officers concerning 
d'Estaing's refusal to act with them. Congress resolves to suppress 
all proceedings in connexion therewith. p. 123. 

Sept. i. Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 20. Encloses return of Washington's 

army. Account of its order, and of its strength. Report that 
English are withdrawing part of their forces in New York to 
Europe, and are merely keeping the points they hold, which they 
can easily do. It must, however, be otherwise in Canada, or that 
conquest would go to the Americans. There seems little likelihood 
of a speedy evacuation of New York, now held by the English; the 
hopes of it have no solid foundation in fact. Spain's attitude con- 
sidered doubtful in the United States since the appearance in the 
New York papers of a paragraph from a London paper. It is 
difficult to believe that the Americans could ever be dangerous to 
Spain on the continent (of America). Points out the precautions to 
be taken in connexion with this matter. Exchange of United 
States prisoners completed. The number of their English prisoners.

ton. The Congress stands by its first resolution in regard to the 
ratification of the Saratoga Convention. D r Berkenhout arrested as 
a spy. Has written a humble letter to the Congress, asking leave to 
withdraw, which it seems the State of Pennsylvania will grant him. 
Temple less happy. Congress believed to be fully determined not 
to agree to any negotiation of which independence does not constitute 
a preliminary condition. p. 154 

September G. Gerard to Vergennes,, N° 23. General Sullivan has made good a 

successful and fortunate retreat. p. 160 

September Jo. Gerard to Vergennes. N° 24. Has drawn up, in conjunction with 

Draiton, a member of the Congress, a written reply to the English 
commissioners, for the purpose of enlightening the American people 
as to England's intentions. The English commissioners' views have 
not met with success. Tory objections to the wording of the United 
States Declaration of Independence ; has given his support to their 
contention. Is suspicious of the motives underlying the attachment 
to the wording referred to. Reasons which keep a large number of 
the inhabitants of the Southern States from being attached to the 
English interests. Those on whom the English can count. Is 
doubtful whether the best methods will be used in drawing the line 
of separation. Considerations which might lead to salutory decisions. 
The Tories in league with the Indians are in arms only on the 
borders of Pennsylvania and Virginia. Effect on Tories of news of 
evacuation of New York. It is thought not unlikely that the bulk of 
the English forces will remove to the West Indies. Resolution of 
the Congress which will weaken the American army by one third. 
Conjectures re sailing of King's squadron for the Islands; has been 
rareful not to say a word as to its destination. Reasons why he 
will merely explain, vaguely, that the cause of independence calls 
for great efforts. A committee is to consult with him as to the fur- 
ther operations in which the King's squadron might take part: does 
not anticipate anything which might hamper d'Estaing in his opera- 
tions. Reasons which lead Americans to wish that the King's squa- 
dron should betake itself to the Islands. Gerard's answer to the 
opinion of the members of the Congress as to conclusion of peace by 
next spring. p. 162.

interpretation of the movements taking place there. Gerard's own 
reasons for asserting that General Washington is mistaken on this 
point. Aim of avisos which de Miralles is having drawn up for 
Martinique; but which will not be despatched until after the return 
of a spy sent to New York. The Congress is of opinion that America 
has nothing to fear from the English armies. The purpose which 
General Washington had in view in allowing his opinion on the Eng- 
lish plan to become known. Aim of the reinforcement sent to Gen- 
eral Sullivan ; reasons why Americans would like General Clinton 
to undertake the siege of Boston. The motive underlying the procla- 
mation of freedom of trade in the Islands. The bulk of the army 
considers the want of success in the attack on New York to be due 
to bad luck. p. 186 

September 12. Gerard to Vergennes. N° 27. Forwarding the 1'hiladelphia Ga- 

zette, containing the English commissioners' letters and declarations. 
[Not enclosed.] It appears likely that the Court of London may 
come to see that the recognition of independence must precede any 
negotiations. News from New York; its evacuation expected shortly. 
No word of General Clinton's expedition; public opinion concerning 
it. What the English may possibly do. Date of execution of orders 
addressed to de Miralles. Encloses a copy of his letter to d'Estaing, 
giving an account of a conference with members of the Congress, re 
plans of operations. Has reluctantly yielded to their wish to tem- 
porize. The Congress desires and hopes to see a decrease in the 
English forces on the continent, so as to be able to arrange matters 
relating to finance. There are no funds available for carrying out 
the operations enumerated to him by Duer, the president of the 
committee. He (Gerard) has insisted on the demand of supplies for 
the King's squadron. There will be no compensation save in case 
of co-operation; a method he has made use of in order to avoid a 
claim for compensation on the part of the United States. Encloses 
letter from General Heath re English squadron. How the English 
plan is regarded. Confidence shewn by members of the Congress in 
respect of the English undertaking. Has heard no complaint re the 
King's squadron. His answer to the question put to him as to the 
assistance to be looked for from Spain. An Acadian member asks 
for help in driving out the English. News of the English squadron 
from General Heath. Letter from General Sullivan on the same 
subject. Likelihood of New York's being evacuated. English attack 
on Boston considered probable. The King's squadron is in no dan- 
ger. Indicates places where the mass of the English forces may be 
found. Sortie made by 3000 English from Kingsbridge. Speaks of 
the difficulty encountered in obtaining recruits. Freedom enjoyed 
by the militia. Commission appointed to reduce the " prodigious " 
number of officers, and to strengthen various parts of the service. 
The reduction in the number of officers may lead to dissatisfac- 
tion, p. 190 

.September 12. Gerard to the Comte d'Estaing. [Copy.] Particulars of his con- 

ference with members of the Congress re joint action between 
d'Estaing and the United States; committee's answer to Gerard re 
the Comte d'Estaing's plan. Attack on the islands proposed by the 
latter, and Gerard's support of it in his conference with the com- 
mittee. Has endeavoured to get an expression of opinion from them 
re troops needed by d'Estaing for the attack on Barbadoes. Com- 
mittee admits that it has a plan of some kind, but cannot be in-

chiced to say what it is. Has urged the committee to supply d'Es- 
taing with the forces needed for taking one of tlie Windward Is- 
lands. Has suggested Halifax as a place where a diversion might 
lie made. Members have taken these ideas into consideration, but 
nothing is decided. Will merely forward the proposals made by the 
Congress. His remarks to the members re Sullivan's behaviour 
towards d'Estaing; members express their views concerning d'Es- 
taing's conduct. His opinion as to the Congress plan of attacking 
t>ne of the English Islands while d'Estaing attacked another.

Versailles. Vcrgennes to Gerard. K°. 5. Minister's reply to the request of 

September Ni. ^ e commissioners of the Congress, asking for a continuation of the 
subsidies. It is in the negative, but another quarter will be paid, 
in order to enable the commissioners to pay the drafts that will be 
presented to them. Fresh request from the commissioners of the 
Congress, relative to two matters: (1) The auditing of Beati- 
marchais' account: (2) the ratification of the contract made by the 
committee of trade with Therenau de Fancy. The King did not 
supply Beaumarehais with anything for the Congress, but merely 
allowed him to draw on his arsenals on behalf of that body, with the 
obligation of replacing what might be taken. The Court is awaiting 
news, both of Gerard and of the Comte d'Estaing. The French 
fleet sailed as long ago as August 17. p. 209 

Philadelphia, Gerard to Vergennes. N°. 29. The writer of an article in the 

September 20. Philadelphia Gazette points out that England might end the war 
and ensure a large trade with the United States, by recognizing their 
independence. The Congress, howeveT, is not of this mind as to the 
method of making peace. Its desire to conquer South Carolina. 
The three southern provinces are also anxious to take St. Augustine 
from the English. Gives his reasons for believing that the United 
States would gladly seize the immediate advantage of a 
peace, but is not therefore justified in thinking that they 
woidd make it without France. Is inclined to assume 
that if the English were to offer independence, it would 
be accepted. Does not believe Americans would make peace 
without France. Certain reflections on this head follow. Believes 
the American system is only suited to a war of defence, and that, 
consequently, they will never take New York. Newport, or Halifax. 
Shews advantage to be derived from stirring tip the Congress to the 
conquest of Canada by promising to keep the English from assisting 
it by sea. Probability that the American army will be reduced to 
8,000 men next year, unless the plans on Canada make a larger 
number necessary. The campaign against Canada could only take 
place next autumn. Sullivan's outburst has been condemned by 
everyone. Reasons why it would be better there should never b*- 
any joint operations between the King's forces and the Americans. 
Plan of asking the help of two or three ships to ensure the success 
of the attack on St. Augustine, reserved for Spain, which would 
demand the cession of that place to her. Advantages to be derived 
by France, were she to protect American trade. General impatience 
to see war formally declared. A member of the Congress asserted 
openly in the assembly that France was not in a state of war with 
England ; an assertion from one of its members very ill-received by 
the Congress. Petitions from the regiments of the ten States re

reduction of officers. Georgia and Carolina have no troops in the 
army; The Virginian regiments have refused to carry out the order 
in question. Gives particulars of the loss and damage caused by 
the hurricane of the 11 th of August. The state of Pennsylvania 
has repealed the law which gave the American commander power 
to take the carts needed, of his own authority; this right is now 
reserved to the Executive Council of the State. The Gazette of 
the 19 th instant contains a very guarded account of the expedition 
against Rhode Island. Some reflections on the weakening of 
England in Europe through her sending naval forces to America, 
to counterbalance the Comte d'Estaing'- squadron. Foresees the 
necessity of warning the governors to prepare for an attack. Advan- 
tages that might ensue, inasmuch as Spain might capture the convoy 
bound to Jamaica. Miralles resolved on an expedition to Havana 
and to Martinique. English squadron returns to Sandy Hook. A 
large number of ships have entered the bay, many of which have 
suffered severely. It is surmised that the August packet has 
arrived with instructions for withdrawing a considerable part of the 
English troops from America who are probably intended for the Is- 
lands. The recall of the English commissioners is confidently Ex- 
pected. Measures taken to ensure the defeat of the expedition 
against Boston. Has induced the committee charged with settling 
the plan for combined operations with the King's squadron, to forego 
the proposed attack on Barbadoes. Has informed the Comte d'Es- 
taing that he is at liberty to act as he thinks best. Has accepted 
the Congress' offer of a ship of six guns to go to the Islands, not 
having been able to find one for this purpose. The ship in question 
will leave shortly for Martinique, with Miralles' despatches and his 
own. A second ship is being sent from Charles Town to Havana. 
It is hoped that a ship may soon be sent from Baltimore to St. Eus- 
tache, whence the despatches will be sent to Porto Rico. Thinks it 
would be well to consent to the loan of 3 or 4 millions which Con- 
gress wishes to make in Holland ; gives reasons for supporting the 
said loan. The sailors of Philadelphia maintain that Admiral 
Gambier's force will not prevent the King's squadron from leaving 
Boston when it wishes to do so. p. 213 

gept. 24. Gerard to d'Estaing. [Copy.] Congress anxious that the King's 

squadron should proceed to the West Indies. Assistance which the 
Congress asks of him (d'Estaing) for an attack on Barbadoes and 
the Bermudas. Forces which the Congress proposes to employ for 
this purpose. The intention is to cede to the King the right of con- 
quest over Barbadoes. Has asked the United States for a force of 
1000 or 1200 meu in support of d'Estaing's own expedition against 
Barbadoes. Refused by the United States. Shews that the United 
States could spare the assistance asked of them by d'Estaing. Has

is included in the proposal. Gerard questions Morris, re details of 
campaign in question ; suggests that the Americans might be the 
only ones to suffer. This he knows to be Washington's opinion. 
Fears expressed by Morris re Spanish objections to campaign against 
Canada ; presumes that Spain wishes Canada to remain English, in 
order to keep the United States in check in that direction. Morris 
shews this policy to be a mistaken one; results which he claims, 
ensue from it. Gerard's reply: claims to be unaware of Spain'- 
views on the matter. His answer to Morris on the views expressed 
concerning St. Augustine, Pensacola and Mobile. Suggests that it 
may be necessary for the United States to give up th e navigation of 
the Mississippi, and St. Augustine and Pensacola in order to reassure 
Spain, if she is really suspicious. Morris, following the advice of 
several of his friends, submits to Gerard the necessity of establish- 
ing a law of coercendo imperio, which would cut short all these 
negotiations, and would not be likely to meet with serious objections. 
States amount to which the debt of the Congress has risen. A loan 
of 3 millions sterling will, it is thought, be needed in OTder to carry 
on operations. Gerard praises Lafayette; whom he has advised 
to ask for leave only and not to resign, as he wished to do. [Oct.

Versailles, Vergennes to Gerard. N° 6. The protection and assistance given 

by the King to America, ought to ensure the indissolubility of the 
alliance which H.M. has formed with the latter country. The first 
result of the present war is to have made this eventual union defini- 
tive. Any peace proposal which failed to recognize the independence 
of America would be rejected. His Catholic Majesty, who is still 
endeavouring to bring about a peace, is well aware of this unalterable 
determination on the part of France. Uncertain attitude assumed 
by England in respect of an agreement, in order to gain time. The 
King of Spain's latest effort at the Court of London to bring it about. 
His instructions to the Marquis d'Almodovar, which are acceptable 
to the King of France, who has directly authorized that ambassador 
to present them in his name. The first article is the recognition of 
the sovereignty and independence of the United States. Spain is of 
the same mind. It would be well to let the leading members of the 
Congress know, confidentially, how matters stand. Should circum- 
tances ever make it necessary to conclude a speedy peace with the 
Court of London, without being able to await the concurrence of the 
Congress, the interests of the United States would be as carefully 
looked after as if their representatives had taken part in the nego- 
tiations. Explains how it comes to pass that these representatives 
are unaware of what is going on in this connexion. The Congress 
ought, ultimately, to send them the necessary full powers and instruc- 
. tions. France thinks it advisable to leave Canada and even Nova 

Scotia to England. The latter would be preferable, should it be 
found well to obtain territory for the United States in that part of 
America. The Floridas are at Spain's disposal. It is doubtful 
whether England would admit the Americans to the Newfoundland 
fisheries; concessions which the Congress might reasonably make, 
their own coasts being sufficiently rich in fish. Instructions which 
it would be well that the Congress should give its delegates in regard 
to the navigation of the Mississippi. States personal opinion of

Vergennes to Gerard. N° 7. Refers to passage in latter's letter which 
seems to convey that the Congress would think itself at liberty to 
conclude a separate peace with England. The terms and the spirit 
of the French treaty are against this opinion. If the Congress will 
declare that it will listen to no peace proposal which does not include 
France, it will ensure an avoidance of all surprises. France has set 
the example in this matter. French court does not think the Con- 
gress intends to attack Canada, but rather New England and the 
neighbouring provinces. Spain is in favour of leaving Canada and 
Acadia to England. France is endeavouring to assist in restoring 
the credit of American paper. The French court is awaiting parti- 
culars of the failure to conquer Rhode Island; but does not think 
that d'Estaing is to blame. States attitude of France in relation to 
M. Miralles.Gerard will be careful to treat as a falsehood anything 
that may be published in the English papers at variance with 
France's engagements with the United States, or with the spirit of 
restraint which Spain has hitherto set on herself. France approves 
of the congressional resolution re Burgoyne's force ; it must remain 
in America. Re establishment of a free port for American products. 
It might be well for Congress to set certain definite limits which the 
United provinces should be unable to exceed ; such a step would

two offices. Deputation sent to Gerard: reasons for it being sent. 
Account of all that was said by the members, and of Gerard's replies 
to them. Gerard's proposal to the Congress to make concessions to 
Spain appears likely to be adopted, on condition that the latter 
country will supply pecuniary assistance towards payment of their 
debts. Particulars on this head, in case of conquest. Congress 
resolves to recall Mr. Arthur Lee, its agent in France. Gerard, on 
being asked, assured them that France would not attach any impor- 
tance to Lee's recall. Drayton apologizes to Gerard for a paragraph 
in the paper of Dec. 9. Samuel Adams also explains his connexions 
with Temple, and goes into particulars on the whole matter with 
Gerard. [Dec. Two members from Maryland assure Gerard 

of their State's anxiety that the King should believe in their unalter- 
able devotion to independence and to the fortunate alliance between 
the United States and His Majesty. They express the satisfaction 
of their State, both at the establishment of a Consulate and at the 
appointment of M. Daumours as Consul. Details of certain parti- 
culars concerning the new President of the Congress; who is only 
to retain his position as a member of the Congress until the month 
of March. The real reason of Mr. Jay's appointment (as President 
of the Congress). The State of Vermont, whose inhabitants are a 
kind of savages, can put into the field five or six thousand trained 
and resolute men. The State of New York has tried to subdue the 
State of Vermont by force; this civil war has with difficulty been 
suppressed for the time being. Means employed to bring about 
a friendly settlement of this dispute. An anonymous writer asserts 
in the Gazette of Dec. 10, that the high cost of the necessaries of 
life is due to the operations of monopolists. Difficulty of establish- 
ing- regulations for the press. The new President of the Congress 
pays Gerard a visit on the very day of his inauguration. The Con- 
gress replies to Gerard re premium to be given to vessels capturing 
hostile ships laden with masts. Encloses letter from the new Presi- 
dent of the Congress. Resolution of the Congress fixing a salary

consults with Gerard as to how he should act in regard to Temple; 
Gerard gives him the same answer that he made to the deputation 
of the Committee. Violent excitement among the citizens over the 
Tories' proposals, and outcries of the Whigs. Certain particulars 
as to the clothing of the American Army. General Washington's 
wish to retire to his Virginia plantations for a while, causes alarm 
in the Congress. Addition of a premium granted by the Congress 
to the one offered for the capture of vessels laden with masts. p. 84.

particulars of a letter re M r Lawrence's retirement; opinions divided 
concerning it. Encloses the thanks tendered to Lawrence by the 
Congress; also the explanation of his reasons for resigning. Men- 
tions Lawrence's plan of being sent to Europe, either to replace 
Franklin, or to raise the proposed loan in Holland. The Congress 
divided into parties over Deane's case; his secret has been made 
generally known in such a way as possibly to have great influence on 
what is being considered in the Congress, and on the people them- 
selves. Conference between Gerard and the new President re the 
matters of chief interest to France and the United States. Gerard 
suggests to the President the importance of not allowing any mis- 
understandings to affect the alliance with France. He urges him not 
to lose sight of the reputation of the Congress in respect of the con- 
sistency of their administration, and chiefly, to endeavour to regain 
the Tories, and restore unity among the citizens. Jay takes Gerard's 
suggestion like a sensible man, and seems well disposed to protect 
the interests of France with no less zeal than those of the United 
States. Gerard refers to the disorganized state of the finances, in 
the general administration, and, most of all, in trade. The President 
is giving his attention to both these points. The Congress is occu- 
pied in settling confederation, and in fixing the plan of operations 
and expenditure for next year. General Washington's speedy arrival 
in Philadelphia gives grounds for hoping that the work connected 
with all these matters will be hastened. Virginia and Carolina are 
not pleased at the Florida campaign. Encloses the questions printed 
in the newspapers by the supernumerary retired officers. Also. 
d'Estaing's proclamation to the Canadians. [Dec. Reports his 
strong & successful plea on behalf of Spain at the dinner to the new

the States should fix their boundaries as to leave her (Spain) in pos-

Versailles, Vergennes to Gerard. N° 8. French ministry ignorant of d'Es- 
taing's whereabouts; disadvantages ensuing therefrom. Do not think 
the English will evacuate New York, but are rather of opinion that 
they will stay there as long as possible, in order to make it the centre 
of their intended operations. Efforts which the Americans should 
make to guard against the designs of the common enemy instead of 
yielding to a sense of security as they seem to be doing. Gerard has 
done well in inducing the Congress to desire the departure of d'Es- 
taing's squadron. Re depreciation of paper money; the King has 
consented to a plan which must certainly have the effect of increas- 
ing its value. There is little hope of a reconciliation with England, 
through the medium of Spain. The proposal of a many years' truce 
has been privately communicated to Franklin, who saw no objection 
to it. The full powers furnished him on leaving Philadelphia are 
not sufficient to authorize him to negotiate a peace with England. 
It w'ould be well if the Congress were to send him more formal 
powers in order to take part with France in the negotiations that 
may take place at any moment. Gerard must do his utmost to induce 
the Congress to consent to a many years' truce. Assurance which 
H.M. is prepared to give the Congress as to the certainty of its 
observance. France and Spain will maintain the English in the 
possession of Canada and Nova Scotia. As for Newfoundland, the 
conquest of that island depends on circumstances. News of Mr.

Gerard to Vergennes. N° 49. Clinton's proposal to Washington re 
exchange of officers misunderstood and ineffective. Resumes his 
account of the constitution of Pennsylvania. Convocation of the 
general assembly instead of that of the convention. Discussions in 
writing for and against the charge that the partizans of the consti- 
tution had violated it by fixing the period of its probation. Report 
of his (Gerard's) various interviews with the President of the Con- 
gress and General Washington. Use to be made of all available 
resources for an active war, a mere war of defence being insufficient. 
Need of adopting a more vigorous system; the King does not ask 
efforts beyond the means of the United States; but, by shewing their 
resources, they can advance the establishment of their independence. 
The President points on the other hand, to the wretched state of the 
finances, and the difficulty of getting recruits. These reasons have, 
however, no force so long as the King employs all his forces against 
the common enemy. Several members in favour of making an honest 
admission to the King of the inability of the American Republic to 
act vigorously on the offensive: Gerard dissuades the President from 
the idea of this embarassing declaration, as well as the members 
most strongly in favour of it. Such an admission would compromise 
the Congress after solemnly announcing its readiness to carry on 
the war by itself. Popular murmurs against the size of the debt, 
without ability to see the consequences of it. Several States ask 
for a division of the taxes between the States, a long and delicate 
operation, which would involve fresh difficulties for the working of a 
system of government. A zealous government must submit to 
certain domestic disadvantages for the sake of the general good. 
The only hope shewn is in the assistance of Spain; this matter is to 
come up at once, without regard to petty considerations of dignity. 
Washington seems to approve of Gerard's suggestions. He declares 
the campaign against Canada to be impracticable without the 
previous evacuation of New York — which becomes daily more un- 
likely to happen. Indian attacks more to be feared than English. 
Congress has not yet told Washington of its resolution re Canadian 
campaign, but keeps repeating to him that no risk must be run of 
deceiving its ally. No order as yet for a Florida campaign, though 
many preparations have been made for it. Praise of Washington. 
Apparent unwillingness of England to cede territories to the United 
States which do not form an integral part of the Colonies. The latter 
must not expect their allies to continue the war to gain them an 
extension foreign to the system of the Union. This consideration 
will affect the offers to be made to Spain. Washington asks what 
compensation the King would claim were he to assist in the conquest 
of Canada. Gerard has no information on this point, but the com- 
pensation would be in conformity with the letter and spirit of the 
treaty of alliance. The enquiry into the finances seems likely to 
produce a resolution. A loan to be raised in Europe. Paper money 
to the amount of 30 to 35 million dollars withdrawn from circula- 
tion for a period of six months. The reason assigned for this course 
is the multiplication of forged paper money, and the advantage to be 
derived from restoring the credit of paper money, which has of late 
become depreciated. There seems to be little foundation for these 
views; the operation is, moreover, likely to arouse popular pro- 
test, and several States will dispute the competence of the Con- 
gress in this matter. Objections to such a regulation ; the holders of

the suspended paper money will be the only sufferers. The eourse of

that individual. Pressing attentions of Samuel Adams and Francis 
Lightfoot Lee, to Mr. Gerard, which do not, however, alter the 
opinion of the last mentioned that it is Adams only who by his 
devices keeps the Congress from giving him (Gerard) a positive and 
satisfactory answer re Lee's expressed views. p. 125

Plan, adopted by the Congress to make an effective diversion during 
the coming campaign ; its efforts to be bounded only by the means 
at its disposal. The evacuation of New York l>eing very unlikely, 
some difficulty might arise in forming a second army corps. General 
Washington authorized to draw up a plan of operations. The pre- 
sident of the Congress makes open profession of his devotion and 
gratitude to the King of France, to which he (Gerard) make? a 
suitable and satisfactory reply. It has been agreed to submit poli- 
tical matters to him, and to ask him to give his opinion on them. 
A large number of landed proprietors in the state of Pennsylvania 
have joined in asking the Congress to increase the taxes, thus shew- 
ing their zeal for independence, and their conviction that this is the 
only remedy for the disordered condition of the finances. The 
depreciation of the paper money would fall on the people ; Americans 
are convinced that its value can only be kept up by means of taxes. 
General Clinton has offered to ransom Burgoyne's troops, having 
failed to obtain their exchange. He will, however, be refused. Fresh 
considerations have warded off the attack that was to have been 
made on D r Franklin. P- L

he dwelt strongly on the difficulties arising from the state of affairs

of his contentions in respect of the assistance which they thought 
the Comte d'Estaing might be able to afford. The Congress has 
expressed to him its entire satisfaction at the impression made on 
Americans by the publication of the treaty. His own letters, and 
those of the Congress, have been sent to the Comte d'Estaing by the 
Marquis de Brequigny, who has gained the esteem and the trust of 
the Congress. The President and the Congress have admitted the 
justice of his (Gerard's) demand re compensation on the part of

His difficulty in connexion therewith; he stipulates, inter alia, that, 
in the case of the mutual assistance, which the King should have the 
right to require of the United State.s. H. M. should be free to pro-

junction of the Spanish forces with the American might conquer

the impossibility of vigorous action, it would be well to make peace 
as soon as may be. All officials ordered to report immediately on 
nil matters relating to foreign affairs, in order to avoid the usual 
prolongation of debates. Success of means employed by the Con- 
gress to sustain its own credit and the public confidence: good effect 
on the price of flour and on paper money. Private opinion that 
peace will be made without the States. In default of subsidies from 
the King of France, who could not even authorize a loan, the 
Americans, satisfied with their independence, would be in favour of 
peace, and would forego all ambitious designs. Congress enquire-* 
seriously into Spanish matters, urged thereto by Gerard, in conse- 
quence of certain previous vague hints given by M. de Miralles. 
Grounds for hoping that the Americans will gladly yield to the de- 
mands of Spain. The chief difficulty would be in connexion with the 
limits of American territory. The same applies to claims in respect 
of Newfoundland fisheries; there is a general desire that it may 
fall to France. There is a universal sentiment in favour of peace, 
and of an alliance with Spain. Rise of suspended paper by 25 per 
cent. Price of gold fallen from 10 to 6 and 7 per cent. Perfect 
unity among members of the Congress. Everything points to the 
conclusion of peace. p. 29. 

IVb. 17. Gerard to Vergennes. N° 63. Conference of Gerard with the - 

Committee of Congress on the affairs of the alliance. The address 
of Gerard. He began by impressing on the committee the deter- 
mination of the King to fulfil punctiliously his whole duty towards 
the alliance. The King would agree to no peace, which did not 
provide as a preliminary for the independence of the United States. 
Gerard contrasted the attitude of Great Britain on this subject with 
the favourable disposition of Spain in seeking to bring about fresh 
mediation. Told the committee that all considerations pointed to 
the desirability of peace as soon as the primary object of the war 
had been attained. The King had no ambition for conquests, but 
he would not refuse the advantages which the first achievements of 
his arms might procure. Gerard dwelt upon insufficiency of financial 
resources and difficulty of obtaining recruits; and the impossibility 
of the King giving pecuniary aid. He insisted upon this point 
as otherwise Congress might be reluctant to conclude peace. Con- 
gress should have a plan of war and a plan of peace, both equally 
decisive and well defined. As matters stood the pretentions of the 
United States should be confined to the integral parts of their terri- 
tory. Conquest of Canada can only be the last fruits of a success- 
ful war. As he had hinted as to the necessity of meeting the views 
of Spain, Gerard was asked for an explanation. He replied he had 
no authority to speak on this point, but his personal opinion was, 
that Spain would confine her attention to securing her frontiers and 
to preventing trouble with her neighbours. This object would be 
attained by the possession of Pensacola and the exclusive right of 
navigation on the Mississippi. On this point there were differences 
in the committee, several insisting with warmth on preserving the 
navigation of the Mississippi for the United States. In conclusion 
it was decided unanimously that efforts be made to satisfy Spain.

Vergennes to Gerard. N° 9. Approves of the means taken by 
him to forewarn the Congress against the erroneous views of Richard 
Lee. The honour and interest of the United States prescribe the 
duty of fidelity to the alliance with France, which is the essential 
basis of their political existence. The King makes it a matter of 
conscience to fulfil the obligations which he shares with the United 
States. He has rejected the overtures made to him by England 
through the medium of opain, and will accept none that are not 
based on the independence of America. A fresh scheme of concilia- 
tion, concerning which Spain has consulted France, and to which 
the King has agreed, since it would actually ensure the independence 
of America. Confidential communication which it would be well for 
him to make to the most patriotic and discreet members of the Con- 
gress in order to protect that body against the possible misuse, by 
England, of the overtures made to her by Spain in this connexion. 
Grounds which lead France to consider the attack on Canada as 
impracticable. The opinion of Spain on this point, which France 
is bound to respect, is not favourable to it. GSrard will confine him- 
self to urging the Americans to concentrate all their efforts in doing 
as much harm as possible to the common enemy. Commends 
Gerard for having induced the Congress to explain itself in regard 
to the Floridas. If they offer them to Spain with Pensacola and 
Mobile, he (Vergennes) will set that court's mind at rest as to the 
future views of the United States. He (Gerard) will continue to 
maintain the Congress in its inclinations not to insist on the right 
of navigation on the Mississippi. In order to protect American trade, 
France will grant the ships engaged in it the same assistance as to 
her own. The present high cost of French goods in America can 
only be temporary. Gerard will consult with M. de Sartine as to the 
facilities to be given to American captains for recruiting their crews 
from among English prisoners. No news of the Comte d'Estaing. 
Quite impossible to continue the subsidies. It seems probable the 
interests for the payment of which the Congress has drawn on 
Franklin will be paid, at least in part. Association of bankers 
pledged to a limited advance. The Congress ought not to have 
published the treaty of alliance with France, without first consulting 
the latter country. Gerard might convey a gentle hint to the prin- 
cipal members of the Congress, in this sense. The publication of the 
treaty will, however, do good. p. 57. 

Gerard to Vergennes. N° 66. Gerard has been sounding public 
opinion. There is a general desire for peace. Almost without 
exception Congress believes peace to be necessary, and the wishes 
of the people are even more explicit. Their one object is the restor- 
ation of quiet, the discontinuance of taxes and the re-establishment 
of commerce. Congress on the other hand while admitting the 
difficulties of the situation, are actuated by a desire to gain such 
advantages from the circumstances as will increase their power and 
influence. A loan of at least £2,000,000 and a good harvest are

necessary for an aggressive campaign, but Congress counts on aid 
from France anil Spain to bring England to her knees. Hence the 
ambitions of the Americans are unlimited. There are, also, demands 
on the part of the separate states. Hence from the mere excess of 
the claims it is probable that the Congress, after some explosions of 
patriotic zeal, will finally content itself with peace on the simple con- 
dition of independence. If Congress prove obstinate, the people 
will most likely bring them to sober views. Among the various con- 
ditions of peace, besides their independence, the Americans contem- 
plated the cession of Nova Scotia to them and the preservation of 
the fisheries on the coasts of that peninsula. New England insistent 
on this. Gerard deprecated this idea, particularly as Great Britain 
was mistress of one entire state and two important places in the 
centre of the States. The French King would be astonished at 
those pretentions, particularly as the States could not claim Nova 
Scotia even by right of conquest ; if the States were successful, the 
Allies must in right and honour make demands; and that the magni- 
tude would drive Great Britain to continue the war. He suggested 
that the States claim only the fisheries on the Nova Scotia coast, 
alleging the specious plea of ancient possession, but they should not 
make this an ultimatum. After discussion the States came to the 
conclusion to leave all such propositions to the decision of France. 
As to the Newfoundland fisheries. Gerard's informants stated that 
the Americans had no pretentions to the fisheries either on the New- 
foundland coasts or on the Banks; and that their desire was that 
France should obtain half of the fisheries, partly to preserve the 
alliance and partly in the interests of commerce. As to Spain 
the disposition of the Americans was to leave the key to the Missis- 
sippi entirely with Spain; to disclaim any rights of navigation on 
any parts of that river watering Spanish territory; to allow Spain 
to have Pensacola and the two Floridas. The Americans would 
desire merely to have an entrepot for their Mediterranean trade. In 
consideration of these sacrifices, Spain should grant a pecuniary 
subsidy to the United States. These views appear to prevail for the 
moment, but they will doubtless be subject to modifications. Wash- 
ington informed Gerard that a convoy with 2500 men left New 
York a week before; he was assured they were for Georgia. From 
appearances it would seem that Great Britain was about to evacuate 
Rhode Island, and make New York, Charlestown and Halifax its 
sole ports in America. p. 75. 

Gerard to Yergennes. N° 67. The committees directed to pre-

States to Spain have commenced their work. An amicable begin- 
ning was interrupted by lively opposition. The objects in dispute 
were (1) the acquisition of Nova Scotia, (2) the manner in which 
the instructions to the peace plenipotentiaries were to be carried 
out. The Eastern party raised the questions, and its views were 
strongly opposed. Some of those in opposition to the demands jt 
the Eastern party, had recourse to Gerard for arguments. He sug- 
gested to them, inter alia, that supposing independence to be granted, 
the United States should not make a claim to territory, to which 
they had no right ; that France in procuring for the United States 
their independence, had undertaken no engagement to assist them 
to make conquests; that as the demands meant continuation of war,

the relations of the United States with the Allies would he essen- 
tially changed by that fact, and that the Allies would undoubtedly 
look for indemnities and compensations from the United States ; 
that by insisting on this course the United States would lose charac- 
ter and their reputation would be tarnished by ambition and greed. 
Gerard assured that the majority of the delegates would favour a 
peace, the terms of which should be settled by France. On the ques- 
tion of boundaries, it is proposed to take the treaty of Paris 
and the proclamation of the King of England of the 8 th Oct., 1763, 
which fixed the limits of the English colonies. As regards Spain 
it is proposed to make as the condition of peace, the cession of the 
two Floridas to that power. Respecting the Newfoundland fisheries. 
Gerard was assured of the desire of the United States that France 
alone should share with England these fisheries. Gerard contrasts 
the course pursued by the United States during these negotiations 
with that held by Great Britain, much to the disadvantage of the 
latter. p. 85.

Confederation regarded as very uncertain by several members of the 
Congress. They foresee a difficulty from the increased debt as a 
necessary consequence of the union, and fear a dissolution, when 
the danger of war is removed. Several years war would, in 
their opinion, put an end to personal views in men's minds in dealing 
with public affairs. While admitting the need of peace, the gist of 
their opinions is that the States have not the means to make war, 
and are incapable of making a good use of peace. Gerard gives them 
no hope of obtaining war subsidies from the King of France. Adora- 
tion of the principle of only insisting, in respect of the boundaries 
of the United States, on the cession of the territory held by them 
prior to the Revolution. They will probably forego their claim to 
Canada and Nova Scotia. Why the boundary from Lake Ontario

English commissioners arrive before the conclusion of the said 
operations Gerard will endeavour to secure a refusal to admit them. 
Shews the importance of their being excluded. The alliance doe9 
not weaken the prejudices of the American people. Many persons 
favour an alliance with England, if she will recognize their inde- 
pendence. Explains difficulty in which he would be placed, were 
the English commissioners to begin by recognizing independence. 
It would not then be easy to oppose their admission; all that could 
be done would be to receive their proposals, and refer them to the

Philadelphia, Gerard to Vergennes. N° 76. At the time of his last report, 

April 4. the committee were on the point of taking a vote when the opposi- 

tion again intervened. The point of attack was the Nova Scotia 
fisheries. Samuel Adams in speaking on the antagonism between 
the Eastern and Southern states, let drop the words that it was 
becoming clearer every day that these two empires must eventually 
separate. On the question of rights of New England in those 
fisheries, the New Englanders allege that the treaties of peace be- 
tween France and England gave them a title. On referring to the 
treaties it is found that their benefits are confined to British sub- 
jects, which the Americans were, when the treaties were made. 
Gerard, consulted, asks from whom the opposition would propose 
to demand a share in the fishing of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. 
The members replied, from France and England. Gerard deals 
vigorously with this proposition, asking if it is from America's 
ally that the United States would snatch away its possessions. He 
reminded them that the treaty of alliance provided that if it fell 
to the allies to share conquest among themselves France was to 
have Newfoundland: France anxious to help America, but its own 
interests must not be attacked. Inconsistency of abandoning the 
principle of liberty to demand a share in a distribution considered 
unjust. Eagerness of Americans to invade fisheries everywhere, 
notwithstanding their possession of the most abundant fisheries on 
their own shores. The views he held prevailed, but vote deferred

till following week. All the points in the instructions to pleni- 
potentiaries settled, except the fisheries, and it appears this will be 
concluded to satisfaction of France. Growing embarrrassment of 
public affairs hampers work of Congress. Paper money discredited. 
;Knows of case where $48 was paid for guinea. Mr. Holker has sus- 
pended his drafts. Secret drafts drawn in England at 13 and 15 
per cent. Famine in many places. Acrimonious discussions going 
on, and doubts raised as to authority of Congress. The terms of 
Samuel Adams and Mr. Lee expire in May. Some chance of their 
not being returned. Their absence would tend to greater union and 
vigour in Congress. Gerard gives his reasons for the course he has 
pursued towards the delegates. Many opulent and distinguished 
citizens asked Gerard whether overtures of France to Congress were 
limited to making peace, conditional upon the two points — inde- 
pendence and the maintenance of the alliance. On being assured 
that such was the case they declared themselves as well as all Pennsyl- 
vania for the party supporting that policy, and offered to lead a 
movement to drive from their seats all delegates opposed to that 
policy. Gerard thanked them, but advised the employment of peace- 
ful methods to attain the ends desired. Pennsylvania to determine 
the future of its officers independently of Congress, an arrangement 
which will i>erhaps be followed by other states. Uneasiness regard- 
ing the last expedition of General Clinton. Washington suspects 
its purpose may be the burning of Philadelphia. The terror excited 
is salutary and will lead to measures for the defence of Delaware.

His friends in majority, but attendance of members fluctuates so 
much as to render a vote hazardous. In favourable moment the 
Spanish business was settled, the only opponent being Mr. Lee. 
Chief difficulty now is the recall of commissioners employed in 
Europe. Opposition fear that persons chosen may not be favour- 
able to their views. Anxiety as to the absence of news from their 
commissioners in France. Their silence attributed to lack of con- 
fidence in them on the part of the King. The friends of the alliance 
will limit the discussion of the fisheries question to the Nova Scotia 
fisheries, and will exclude from consideration those of Newfound- 
land. The Gazette of 17th contains ostensible conditions of treaty 
of reconciliation. General Arnold is to be tried by council of war. 
New issue of paper money enhances greatly the value of specie. 
Expenses of coming campaign will exceed 80 million dollars. Opin- 
ion as to effect of depreciation of paper money divided in Congress. 
The Government of Carolina suggests that the French in Charles- 
town form themselves into a battalion for the defence of the town. 
Idea approved by Gerard, who hopes this action may inspire Ameri- 
cans with respect for and confidence in the French. Le Sr. de 
Britigny proposed as Colonel for battalion. Great satisfaction in 
United States with the declaration of the Due de la Vauguyon res- 
pecting freedom of commerce. Recruiting goes forward with fair 
success, but the States complain of being hampered by Congress. 
Some of them have offered to double or triple their contingents in

Peace party thought recall of commissioners a good opportunity. 
Detriment to interests of the States from the animosities that have 
arisen between the old and new commissioners. Franklin's recall 
negatived'; matter to be debated. Bitterness and indecency of debates 
re Arthur Lee. Opposition agrees that he ought not to have been 
accredited to France, but holds that he might be to Spain. Anyone, 
however, unworthy of the King's confidence could not gain that of 
His Catholic Majesty. The States were divided 4 against 4 by the 
manoeuvres of those responsible. The validity of this decision is 
contested by the patriots, who wish to resume the question and are 
adopting means to uphold it with which Gerard has supplied them ; 
gives details. Publication of the list of personal votes; the majority 
in favour of the good cause. The King of Spain should, in the 
interests of the alliance, refuse to accept this decision. M r Lee insinu- 
ates that, on account of the family compact, the French King 1 s 
affection would always lean exclusively towards Spain. The oppo- 
sition is in close correspondence with John Temple at Boston, where 
he has made some converts. He will proceed to France, to arrange 
means with M r Lee for bringing about the failure of his real in- 
structions, should they be contrary to their views. Urges his arrest 
on his arrival in France. The order he received from the Congress 
to quit Philadelphia might serve as an excuse for doing so. What 
should be thought of the eagerness of the opposition to warn the 
people against France, as shewn by the enclosed documents. Should 
the general Congress wish to do anything against the alliance, the 
American army would be inclined to revolt. The principal officers 
are confident of the favourable disposition of the people of their

no doubt as to his way of thinking. The American army now con-

returning and will raise it to 14 thousand men during the course

for an offensive campaign against the Indians towards Lake Ontario 
and a defensive against the English of New York. Sullivan is to

better to substitute a truce for a formal and definite treaty. Several 
well-intentioned members of the Congress, when sounded on this point 
on an occasion made use of by Gerard assured him that the Ameri- 
can people were greatly averse to such a plan, and that the Congress 
would not dare to adopt it. Such a proposal coming from France, 
would give rise to endless suspicion and distrust, which would recoil 
on the Congress, and endanger its very existence. Several States 
which desire peace and have nothing to gain by a continuance 
of the war, would oppose any plan which held out a possibility of 
its renewal at any period, however remote. The indefinite period 
of a peace would be too uncertain for Americans. At its conclusion, 
France and Spain, unable and unwilling to protect America, would 
leave her to the mercy of England. Gerard's simple remark to the 
members as to this discussion. They maintain that the outcome would 
render the truce disastrous to America, since it would destroy the 
basis on which it is hoped to found a firm government. The dis- 
banding of the troops forms part of the purpose of all the States; 
danger of such a course during a limited truce, and one looked (upon 
as precarious. The plan offers no advantages to the States, either 
in respect of administration, of population, of agriculture, or of the 
arrangement of the finances, etc. Gerard, finding it impossible to 
allay these apprehensions, drops the whole question as of no impor- 
tance. He leads his conversation with Washington on to this sub- 
ject, to whom the idea seemed entirely novel : is struck to find him 
in complete agreement with the members of the Congress concern- 
ing it. His unqualified objections to it. Explains plan he intends 
to follow in order to carry out the minister's instructions. Takes as 
his premiss the fact that the Congress has not taken into considera- 
tion the possibility of an armistice being proposed. Success of the 
first move made in this direction eagerly seized upon by three mem- 
bers, p. 28.

SESSIONAL PAPER No. 29b 

ted or rejected has been put forward by those in favour of peace, 
according to their promise. Sittings in connexion therewith taken 
up with recriminations. Memorandum presented by Gerard to the 
Congress in order to point out the course it should pursue [En- 
closed with this despatch.] Sensation caused by it, without offend- 
ing any one; those opposing it condemn all delay, and vote in favour 
of an explanation of its motives; which are merely the common- 
places of the constitution of the Assembly. The opposition establish 
the fact that the best answer to the memorandum is to complete the 
work in hand. General expression'of trust in, and gratitude towards 
the King of France. All this has resulted in taking the contents of 
the memorandum into special consideration. In replying to the 
King's letter of notification, strong emphasis will be given to the 
devotion felt for His Majesty and the gratitude of the United States 
towards his person. The same expressions will be repeated in another 
letter, thanking him for having seen to the payment of the interest 
on their loan, and soliciting the supplies indispensably necessary for 
a continuation of the war. A strong impression has been 
made by the passage in the memorandum which refers to 
the King's willingness to lend the States all the assis- 
tance possible ; an impression confirmed by the subsequent 
announcement of d'Estaing's coming. States that he has 
little hope of bringing about the change which his endeavours have 
accomplished, and which he supported by means of private conversa- 
tions, his chief aim having been to allay the prevailing bitterness. 
Reports the true and firm, but moderate language which he used to 
them; the reflection which struck them most forcibly. Dangers to 
the States in inclining towards war. They can only justify them- 
selves to the world by following the prudent course marked out for 
them by the French proposals. M r Arthur Lee will not go to Spain. 
The friends of France have been urged to moderation, thus making 
it easy for the opposition to return without hurting their self- 
esteem. Measures to be taken to prevent the compromising of the 
French negotiations. The Massachusetts members discuss the fish- 
eries article with Gerard, who begs them not to advance any claim 
which might compromise France's interests in respect of Newfound- 
land; they adopt the considerations and expedients suggested to them 
by him. p. 63.

Philadelphia. Gerard to Vergennes. N° 85. Satisfactory impression produced 

" Iay in Congress by the reading of memorandum of Gerard's respecting 

d'Estaing expedition. Mr. Penn of South Carolina gave utterance 
to very warm expressions of confidence and gratitude towards the 
King. Resolution adopted by Congress assuring him of their grati- 
tude, and fidelity to the principles laid down by Alliance. Washing- 
ton was given full power to direct the operations of the campaign 
in co-operation with Gerard and d'Estaing. Fishery question up 
again. The majority of members incline to Gerard's views. Assur- 
ances received by Gerard from the merchants in the East that peace 
would not be allowed to depend on the preservation of the fisheries. 
Quakers solicit Gerard's good will. He advised them to become 
citizens of the republic. Their number and wealth make them im- 
portant. Inhabitants of Bermuda desire to join Americans, com- 
mittee appointed to confer with them, along with Gerard. p. 89.

Philadelphia, Gerard to Vergonnes. N° 87. Notwithstanding the harmony in 

Congress on the matter mentioned in his last despatch, the oppo- 
sition have made notable gains. Owing to accidental circumstances 
the majority of the peace party has been so reduced that they can 
only count on 10 votes, against 5 held by the opposition. It is 
therefore necessary to temporize. The Opposition are skilfully mis- 
representing the attitude of France, and are succeeding in mislead- 
ing Congress. They no longer desire to encroach on French rights 
in the fisheries, but are limiting their demands to the fisheries re- 
served or not reserved to England in American waters from Nova 
Scotia to Hudson's Bay and Davis strait. These claims alarm the 
Peace party, who see in them the continuation of the war. The 
Peace party declare they will take no part in the war. In spite of 
these conflicts, Congress as a whole is with the Peace party. Gerard 
of opinion that it is only by written memoranda that he will be 
able to act upon Congress. Among reasons given for this course, 
is that the propositions of the Opposition party would deprive 
France of the almost sole advantage secured to her by the treaty 
of Alliance, that of seizing Newfoundland or of at least increasing 
her share therein. Gerard has induced a friendly delegate to pro- 
pose, that, in case of war, it would be agreed to divide these fisheries 
between France, United States and Spain. In his memoranda he 
has confined himself to generalities, setting forth the principles 
of the Alliance, and defining the terms of the treaty. He encloses 
a copy of a memorandum, and of a resume thereof in English (see N°. 
89). Draws attention to a passage towards the end of it, in which 
he says that his object is to let all America know the course pursued 
by the King. This is the s
